Using a SharePoint list as an authentication provider
I normally don't post links to other peoples' articles, but when something makes me say "wow" or "why didn't I think of that". This tip is really cool. It shows in an easy to follow step-by-step process how to make a "users" list in sharepoint, and then make sharepoint (or any other .net application) authenticate users based on that list.
The possibilities are endless. Thank you Willie Rust.
