many  ;o)

encoding is a great idea, because it will remove all temptation for doing a
quick peek into the table when your best buddy phones you and demands you
tell him his password

if you are going to send the user something, send a challenge question,
which can be stored along with the password

e.g. "what type of a dog did i have and what was the street number at my
first apartment when i moved out of my parents' house?"  answer: schnauser53
