ColdFusion Client Variables
I just watched a great presentation "Sessions and Clients and Crashes, Oh My!", with Charlie Arehart on the ColdFusion Meetup site. Its a very good presentation if you have client management enabled or run on a server where it is enabled. Anyone managing a CF server needs to watch this preso. We don't use client variables because we store things in session and save to the db only when needed. We also use sticky sessions and can re-create anything in session from the db. A long time a go we watched client variables do like 3 or 4 queries to the db on every page and said we can do better than that. How ever client variales are a nice feature to have if you need to use it.
