Seems I missed that thread. After thinking it over I came to the conclusion
that using cookies is the most practical way. It's a pity, I hoped there
would have been a different solution, but passing an ID through all my URL
doesn't really attract me ...or maybe... mmh, I really don't know. I think I
try the URL-ID method and if I get completely messed up I use the cookies.

Thanks to all who answered
