[thelist] Homemade Shopping Cart Question

Why not simply use a cookie or session id with a set expiration to track
this? As I recall, session IDs time out after about 30m, a cookie could be
set to expire a day or an hour or a minute after being set (although a short
(<1 day) exp. on a cookie would probably be more annoying then less.

So now the question is, do you timestamp your products as they enter the
basket, and every time you insert reels into this temporary table, do you do
a check for expired products? do you set triggers?

Thanks again,
