It's not the ID of the last article - if you re-request the same URL you get different IDs

Who says the ID is a session ID and not the ID for the currently last viewed article? Using an index / start-parameter in the current list of articles at the time of viewing is not the best way when the list you are using can change over time like a blog does. Keeping the ID for the last viewed article doesn't require state on the server and keeps your list from 'jumping' when the article list on the blog happens to change between the view of the first 20 items and the next 20.

Yeah, I thought the same as Kevin - I'm not convinced of the wisdom of this. The only thing I could think of was that Google maintains that state on the server for some other reason.

Why is this good? Now you have to maintain state on the server. A start parameter would allow you to do this in the client and all you have to do is cache your index on the server and you're done. While google certainly has the resources to maintain the state on the server I'm sure wasting them isn't a good idea. Kevin
