in reply to Cookie Seesions -again !

Don't set an expire time for the cookie. This will return a cookie that only persists for as long as the user's browser is open.

You may want to consider providing a method for users to logout, which would remove the cookie from the user's browser and delete the session file on the server. To handle stale session files on the server, store the date of last use in each file (alternatively name the session file with this date) and periodically have a program delete session files older than a certain, reasonable date.

Discipulus is this the IT?
[Corion]: Discipulus: Well, in many cases it doesn't make sense to build an interface and complicated program just to enter 20 rows into a database ;) But yes, automating data imports should pay off in the long run
[LanX]: Choroba: this happened before I joined, was still in uni, but my boss was summoned to the CEO of the second biggest German bank at that time and could only say " I told them its not ready" ;)
[LanX]: memories....I missed my connection while chatting
[Discipulus]: in this case Corion we are speaking about software licensing: evry year or two we must rescan the whole ced to produce an excel report, while at every activation / disactivation we update a black box DB: i said that i a week i can produce the perl to..
[Discipulus]: rend out the xls IF i have access to the DB
[choroba]: LanX I miss working in a bank sometimes...
[Corion]: Discipulus: Ooof. Especially yearly things are things I like to automate instead of trying to remember how I did things last year...
