We've all been there. We're looking at a site and keep refreshing to see if what we're looking for has been updated. But, often times our browsers will cache items on the page (especially images and Flash™ documents.) This enables faster page loads, and less data transfer, which is actually nice. However, if you're a web developer, or someone who checks the tips site a lot for comments, you want to know that the information you're viewing is perfectly accurate. And, you don't want to empty your cache every time you look at a site. So, here's what you do. To get a page to refresh, and not draw from a cache, simply put a good old-fashioned question mark (?) at the end of your URL, and hit "Enter."
What I really hate is when they run out of cups and no one replenishes them, and I'm so thirsty, and there's a huge tank full of cold, clear, wonderful water just staring at me, separated from me by millimeters of translucent blue plastic, mocking me!
Sometimes I'm tempted to get on my knees and pour the water straight into my mouth like a water fountain. But then I remember that there's an actual water fountain right down the hall.
