Hi Malte,

At the risk of getting slammed by the anti-cookie
lobby : you could always store session variables in
cookies.
You can serialise your array and encrypt that data as
well if you want to, and these cookies can be
automatically deleted when the user quits his browser,
or you can have them expire at a certain time, etc.
