“The protocol used to talk between browsers and application programs is stateless–it has no memory built in. Each time your application receives a request from the browser is like the first time they’ve talked to each other. That’s cool for romantics but not so good when you’re trying to remember what products your user has already selected.”

this romantic begs to disagree. memories are important. especially the nice ones. regretful ones, however, make me wish for the stateless protocol. or as i like to say, the spotless mind.
now i just need to remember that everything works for the good of those who love Him.
