example, if you wanted to note that they clicked on a link to an
article, then the script that serves that article would insert such a
note into a table in the db designed specifically for that purpose.

What you would be noting would be the ID of the user, not the value of
PHPSESSID, because that's just a random string for the period of time
that the user is logged in.

Easy enough, if you have tables and little insert snippets scattered
about to handle that.
