Yeah. You and everyone else on the web... ;-)

Not possible really. The web (by design) is stateless. This is the same
reason that you can't cancel a long running mySQL query if someone hits
"Stop" in the browser or leaves the page (and your mySQL server will
happily keep churning away and then try to return the data to a
non-existant page). It's sort of a "fire and forget" system.

Best you can hope for is to keep updating a timestamp to know how long
they've been there (and an auto-logout after some amount of inactivity).
