Your code is almost pretty much necessary for each page that you create (except the login screen ofcourse)
You dont want people to bookmark pages and think that they can just get in without logging in later on.

To expire a session you can set its properties during the time you create the session. So the moment the session expires it would become null and then any postback even being triggered would transfer the user to the login page

I was doing update statements in SQL Server 2000. I have a table with over 16 million rows. It came from several hundred delimited text files, and two of the columns are file ID (int) and Line # (int) Structure is X12 (835). For those unfamiliar with that, each file has one to many BPR lines; each BPR line has zero to many CLP lines, each of those has zero to many

In Windows 11 and 10, there is no way to turn off the Windows Update option using the Control Panel or Settings app; it automatically checks for updates and installs any it finds, whether you like it or not. For most users, this new feature is actually very convenient. If you want to control the update process,...
