 I second that! I have a large squid cache at home so the three of us can
browse the net without being too lagged alot of the time. Unfortunatly,
Communicator on our one windows seems to completely break the cache. Also,
it opens ALOT of tcp streams.. Even when talking to HTTP/1.1 server with
keep alive... That completely kills the connection.. I can't find where to
adjuect the TCP connections in NS anymore either..

 What a piece of crap..
