Warning: sleep() has been disabled for security
My questions is: Why were you even using sleep()? There's not much reason to deliberately slow your application down.

Authentication alone is usually pretty standard. Most web frameworks have the basics covered, but it's not difficult to make a reasonable one yourself as long as you avoid most of the older tutorials (and even some recent ones) because they usually ignore good security practices. Going with a framework at least means that you're using (usually) well-tested code that is less likely to have oopsies in it than something you've written yourself, especially if you're inexperienced. There are small frameworks which are good for smaller projects where you don't want to re-invent the wheel for boilerplate stuff but you don't want to deal with the baggage of a more comprehensive framework.Edited by randomizer - 4/22/13 at 5:08am
