[Mono-list] Cross-Browser Session Mixing

Another option is at the beginning of the request in
the global.asax.cs, you package up all the variables
into an object and store that in the HttpContext. Then
the object is available for any other controls or in
the page code for the duration of the request. You
have to populate this object from the db at the
beginning of every request but it scales well and
avoids session variables altogether.

Hope it helps,
