    Default Login loops and session variables (follow up quest

    I posted a couple of days ago. Thanks to Steve Miller and oli for helpful responses. I want to push a user to the home page if they fail to login correctly 3 times. Both responses recommend a session variable to track the number of login attempts. That makes sense to me.<BR><BR> How does this answer relate to the "Session Variables are evil" discussion? It seems like a legitimate use for session variables to me. Any other approaches or opinions.<BR><BR>dh
