Caching: Tool of the Devil

I like the Watley Review enough to check it once a week. I haven’t looked at the Onion much recently; I think the quality suffered when they moved to the Big Apple or whereever.

But, as should be obvious from this post, I didn’t think there had been a new issue of WR since June 26–because, whenever I checked, the front page was unchanged. So I bit on a hoax.

I’m to blame for not following the link at Blog of a Bookslut to see the original article.

But caching has something to do with it: For some reason, Firefox keeps bringing up the old version. Until I explicitly hit Refresh while on that page. Not a problem I’ve had before… and annoying as, well…
