And a server might easily have over 128 MB of RAM.
So in my opinion perhaps people don't need to be QUITE so afraid to use some session variables especially for sites that are never expected to have high traffic.
Might be so, so the server will not crash. But assume you are not the only one on the server. Session variables do put extra strain on the server and is not considerate to others if you are lagging it up, And vice versa. http://www.4guysfromrolla.com/webtec...ced/faq4.shtml
