Hiye, I'm currently experimenting on Role based security.
I plan to store all my user roles in a cookie. Here are
the questions,

1. What will happen if my user disables the feature to
accept cookies? I've tried this on my pc, looks like the
browser still creates cookies. I wonder why. Someone care
to explain?
2. How can I detect if the browser accept cookies or not?

Thanks in advance for the reply.

Yours truly,
