You're waaaaaay out of date.

That post was about Jason's original instructions. Did you know that we
have since created a Filter to do NTLM Auth? Please look at the relevant
news bullets on our homepage and read the latest NTLM document:

A  program should be written to model the concepts of the task it

maximizes  the  potential  for it to be applied to tasks that are
conceptually  similar and more importantly to tasks that have not
yet been conceived.
