The Purge Page in CF 5 - hidden but not forgotten

While I love the CF Administrator, there's one feature that is slightly hidden. I don't need it often, but when I do it is usually an emergency and I have to click around till I remember where it is. It's that little form that says "purge data for clients that remain unvisited for n number of days. To find it, log into the CF Administrator and click on "client variables". If you are using the registry or a data source you will see that the word "registry" or the name of your data source is a link. Click on the link and you will find the form. Also note that there is an important tech note and hot fix for client variables if you are using them. Also note that most CF Gurus concerned with scalability recommend that you not use the registry to store client variables. Use a data source instead - and please people, not Access, ok?
