    I'm new to asp.net and confused about how forms authentication and
    membership are used in real-world apps. For example, suppose I want to
    create a website that allows users to register, log in and interact with
    custom data in SQL server. I can use membership to take care of the
    usernames/passwords, with the database set up by aspnet_regsql, but then
    how does that fit in with the custom data I want users to store? If I
    create extra tables, how do I get at the data belonging to the logged-in
    user? Or do I forgo membership and handle the username/password stuff
    myself, in which case how do I store and retrive the user ID using forms
    authentication? How is this normally done? Help appreciated!
