"Snippets" are mini-articles - they allow me to very quickly add answers to your frequently asked questions, and add brief explanations for topics that you've searched for without success. So, everytime you send an email or perform a search, chances are a new snippet will be the result!

27 Oct: Don't misunderstand Session.Abandon...

Mohamed Maza pointed out: "I have tried the active users example: the users counter is incremented correctly, but then when i call Session.Abandon(); the counter is not decremented"

This is a subtle effect. Calling Session.Abandon only queues the session for deletion, then waits until the current page is complete. So calling Abandon on a page has no effect during that page. Moving to another page of course kills that session, then immediately starts another, so the user count stays the same.

Although the active users stays the same, you will see the "Users today" increment though.
