This week's book giveaway is in the OO, Patterns, UML and Refactoring forum. We're giving away four copies of Refactoring for Software Design Smells: Managing Technical Debt and have Girish Suryanarayana, Ganesh Samarthyam & Tushar Sharma on-line! See this thread for details.
Got a weird problem going with Internet Explorer (version 5.00 on Windows 2000). Sometimes (but not always) I can't view the source of a page served by Orion. And I can't seem to be able to figure out any pattern. I select View | Source from the menu and nothing happens. Doesn't seem to matter whether it's a static *.html page or something generated on the fly by a servlet. Further weirdness. Sometimes I can view the source of page generated by out.println()s in doPost(), but only after receiving a warning that the source might not be accurate. Sometimes I can view the source generated by Reverse2Servlet's doGet(), but once things have been doPost()'d, I can no longer view source. Anyone else ever experience this problem? Any ideas on how to fix? Note that simply saving the Orion-served pages for subsequent viewing is not a perfect solution because IE inserts extra data into the HTML. (Sometimes if the page is servlet-generated, it omits everything inside the HTML body tags, which is exactly what I want to see...).
Well, deleting nearly 40,000 cache, er, uh, Temporary Internet Files seemed to do the trick. At some point I realized that I stopped being able to view the source of any page. On a lark, I figured I'd do a purge of cache files, and whaddya know -- it fixed the problem.

Hey, what's amazing now is how fast JavaRanch pages load now that I got rid of all those cache files...
