missing freshness in my browser

My NowServlet nicely shows the sought-after date and time.
But it doesn't update if I reload (refresh) my browser.
I guess this is a problem of browser settings somewhere, and not of my code?
I use Konqueror on Suse 8.1, but searching my settings where in vain.
Does anybody have an idea?
I would LOVE to send it in and get a change in my asignment log colour!
Thanks a lot for helping (on a work-free sunday :roll: )

Hi Julianne, good to see you around again.
In Konqueror, at the top you should find "Settings". Choose "Configure Konqueror". In the resulting dialog you can chose "Cache" on the lefthand side. Then you can uncheck "use cache". Have you tried all that?

Getting someone to think and try something out is much more useful than just telling them the answer.

Barry, thanx for answering.
Yes, I have tried that (and to make sure, all other possible combinations, too).
Well, since I am pretty sure that this is NOT a problem of my servlet code, I'll now send this assignment in, anyway.
That the browser doesn't update my servlet is a minor problem - but it just bugs me not to know why..
So, I'll appreciate any other tip of you experienced people out there!
I agree. Here's the link:
