comment Redirect page to symlink
Using PHP to perform the redirect is marginally slower than using mod_rewrite - is there a reason you are avoiding mod_rewrite?

comment Does SSL really matter for most websites?
@Zoredache That's why the hash must be salted. Here's how it works: I send you the login page with a pre-populated token which includes a microtime() call from the server. Your transmitted hash is a combination of your password + the microtime() and, once I receive your hash, I invalidate the microtime()+password challenge/response pair (it cannot be used again).

comment Does SSL really matter for most websites?
@AgentConundrum - Strictly speaking, it is OK to pass a password run through a one-way hashing algorithm over HTTP if the password is salted, so I wouldn't be too surprised to see an MD5 hash implementation on sites which aren't utilizing SSL: pajhome.org.uk/crypt/md5

+1 "many larger sites don't necessary follow best practices" - I'm sure there will be some laughable headlines when Nigerian 419'ers figure out a way to monetize stolen dating site profiles :)

+1 Target audience is key, but Facebook Connect seems iffy for anything that is intended to stay live for the next 5 years (remember MySpace? Friendster?)

comment Why does Google sometimes show fewer than the standard pair of lines for the “snippet”?
The text provided is probably scraped from anchor text and titles. I tested against one of my domains behind a robots.txt "Disallow: /" and I see the same behavior.

You might take a look at the encoding on those JPG's - 57kb is heavy for a single 200x200 image...

comment Uses of LINK tag
+1 Though I'd revise: "alternate" is the correct relationship for related RSS feeds (particularly useful if you don't like having an "RSS" button on every page) and xl8n/i8ln versions. See also: w3.org/QA/Tips/use-links
