Using a Database/Cookies

After implementing all of this personalization, its wasted if a user goes away, comes back and sees it all gone. Usually sites will store the necessary information in a cookie on the user's machine to keep track of their preferences (and we all know what other little things we can get cookies to do). You can also store all/some of the data in a database of users.
