Re: Makeing squid smart

This idea sounds very similar to a story I heard floating around about one
version of Microsoft's proxy server (ugly little beast that that is)
cacheing an entire site when someone hit it, and hence causing great pain
for the (often) small IAP at the other end.

I suppose one level would make a small amount of sense, but you'd have to
be _very_ careful - maybe one level, no more than x links per page, with x
being about 10 or 15 - the last thing you need is for someone to hit a
_major_ links page :)

Oh, and thank you to the person who produced the transparent proxy server.
I've already put it in place in one site in front of the aforementioned
braindead (commercial!) MS proxy server, which doesn't understand siblings,
and it's working a treat :)
