comment HTTP Session or Database approach
in that case, you could just as easily use cookies to store the cart information and still use the encrypted key with timestamp. We used that solution prior to HTML5 and experienced the same scalability although bandwidth was slightly more due to round trip cookies on each request. If you are only storing the producdtID=quantity its a fairly small data chunk as people don't normally purchase 80 unique items, more like 1-5 unique items on average.

comment HTTP Session or Database approach
@UmeshAwasthi I suppose my clients do not care about the very small handful of people on lower browsers but obviously this is a bad approach if its a different case in your web traffic. I know still lots of the world uses XP on IE7 and sometimes IE6 but some of my clients products are found in stores such as Nordstroms and Macy's etc. and seem to not be concerned about that.

comment HTTP Session or Database approach
Why? I run several hundred ecommerce websites and we store everything in either cookies or localStorage (HTML5). Also, sessions use up memory. When we do account login we use an encrypted cookie with a timestamp. We don't need a session because when a page loads, we use HTML5 techniques to store and use sessionStorage after a single load. This is IE8+ compatible standard web tech.

comment How to make an ASP.NET MVC site modular
MEF is better. I was giving ideas without looking into it but I would have used MEF given that option if it was out when I did those projects. Seems like a good idea. I don't see why you can't combine MEF and MVC.

comment How to create a random generator
I'm talking about wind speed, barometric pressure, temperature, humidity, etc. You can take a sample of measurements and have a hard time arguing against randomness in that regard. Also, temperature alone taken at enough accuracy is very random.

+1 I would consider different data sources like weather measurements for your seed. wiki.cdyne.com/?title=CDYNE_Weather

@BryanOakley maybe say "it is your job to create good working code for your given use cases and scope" because its just too open ended. It ends up shouldering too much blame on a developer and developers just hate that.
