The bbc have a similar system on their news site. I believe they store the 
users choices in a cookie.

I have seen other sites do the same - I think your allowed to keep this kind 
of choice stored in a cookie.

But a at work where my browser cache is cleared every day I see this mesage 
everyday an dthat is annoying!
