Nope.

Just make it expire in a 100 years or so. Is that sufficient?

Not if you make it a 200 hundred!

Have you heard of the wonderful one-hoss shay,
That was built in such a logical way
It ran a hundred years to a day,
And then of a sudden it -- ah, but stay,
I'll tell you what happened without delay,
Scaring the parson into fits,
Frightening people out of their wits, --
Have you ever heard of that, I say?

If so, it will end up in an MRE: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/MRE
Seriously, though: a transient cookie (one which has no expiration date)
will never expire if sent to a browser that never closes. All other cookies
expire.

Hi... I've come across some weird bug with Response.Cookies. Or maybe it will be called "by design" but for the life of me I can't figure out what purpose it would serve. If you're setting a cookie (say Response.Cookies ("TEST")) and you have a query string variable &test=x or &Test=x and you get Request.QueryString to parse the query...
