Thanks Luke, I was afraid that was going to be the answer. The thing that I
am getting stuck on now is that if I don't use FormAuthentication.Encrypt
and instead do the encrypt myself, I'm not sure what this Encrypt method
does? You pass it an authentication ticket and it returns an encrypted
version. How exactly do I reproduce that but with my own class?
