Sure, that's not a bad idea, but what happens when someone book marks the link? What about somebody copying the url and passing it to a friend? What about storing the link in an online bookmark type site? What about pasting it to a forum or something to share it?

    I use CGI::Session to maintain state in my applications. I also tack the CGISESSID value onto the end of each url in case a user does not have cookies enabled.

    I understand your comment on bookmarking and linking problems with session-id-appended urls, but am not sure if there are any other ways to deal with browsers with cookies turned off, or user agents with no cookie capability. Any suggestions? (I'm open to other options from what I am using at the moment for those reasons outlined)
