FICGS update : Security improved

Hello to all.

You may (sure :)) have noticed the new login page with two forms.

This is most probably temporary.

Of course, passwords are stored 'hashed' on the server so that noone can retrieve it, even me... Now, if you login with the first form, your password won't be even sent through the internet, it is hashed by your browser before. Second, passwords won't be stored anymore in cookies with the secure form. At last, a new barrier against hacking... The old form is still available because it might be possible for certain players to be disconnected early because of their changing ip address (according to the internet provider).

Please just tell me if you encounter any problem. Thanks in advance :)
