Kurt Warner belongs in the Hall of Fame

Kurt Warner is the definition of a Hall of Famer. Why? Every time someone said quit, he kept fighting. He took what was given to him and made the best of it. Along the way he got a Superbowl ring, Superbowl MVP honors, season MVP honors and is one of the most dangerous QB's in the game. The greatest show on turf was not a fluke.

Probably the biggest single thing for me is a veteran player who says "I need to improve myself, fix what needs fixing and then I can lead my team". Kurt has done that. Improvements in reading receivers and how he holds the ball. There's not much more a coach can ask player to do.

Oh, by the way his character has been impeccable. A selfless player who works in the community for the benefit of others. Yes, character should count for HoF.

We need more guys like Kurt and Tony Dungy. Christian men who are not afraid to stand up and be counted.

BTW, please play next year. You've still got it and the game needs you!

Migrating Legacy Apps to the New SimpleMembership Provider

Asp.Net MVC4 uses the new SimpleMembership provider, changes the table structure and adds a new hashing algorithm. The reasons for the changes can be found in this article by Jon Galloway. This article shows how to migrate your existing apps to the new provider.I’m assuming that you stored your passwords in the unrecoverable SHA-1 format. If you didn’t, then you’ll have to change a couple of things. All of my apps are done this way so… I’m also assuming that you have created the basic skeleton of the new app and ran it once so the correct tables will be created.First, we’ll look at the new tables. Previously, we had all of those aspnet_xxxxxx tables. Here’s the new ones.UserProfileContains all of the elements relevant to the user. This is a combination of the aspnet_Users table and the aspnet_Profiles table.webpages_MembershipStores the password info when not using OAuth, Live, Facebook, etc. This table is somewhat of a match to the aspnet_Membership table.webpages_OAuthMembershipStor…
