ah ... you mean sessions.

Usually this is done with cookies.  The server instructs the browser to write a small text file on the hard-drive called a cookie.  The cookie contains a unique key that identifies that instance of the browser to the server.  So every time you click another link on EE, the browser sends the key from the cookie to the server, and the server knows who you are by that key.  Does that help?

Basically knightEknight is rights. But there is a little different with sessions and cookies. Cookies are written to the users harddrive. Sessions are small pieces of information IN memory. Whenever you do a request you'll send your information of who you are to the server, that server than uses that information to get the additional information. It is all in memory, but they do make use of temporary cookies (that expire right away). EE uses both (seen the code yet?)
