Table structure

For all of you worried about how MultiJournal is gonna store your passwords I have proposed a table structure. That doesn't store your password in plain text for any of the journal services. The only place a password is stored in plain text is for MultiJournal. This way we can email your password to you. This option will most likely dissappear in the future with a link that is emailed to you that allows you to reset the password. the table structure can be viewed at http://www.multijournal.org/tables.pdf Please comment and let me know what we can do to impove security using this method. We will have to store users passwords in some way. Other wise the whole proxy server thing goes out the window. Comments can be posted at http://www.livejournal.com/community/multijournal/4840.html
