I still do not understand (and agree) why you need the password. The user ID should be unique, and should be enough to determine user specific content.

I didn't talk about sessions in my book. Not because it's too advanced, but because you should typically stay away from them if you can.... ;-) They can easily be abused and cause problems when you start storing large objects in them.

Cheers,

Imar
