Heh. Actually, I thought that one was self-evident. By the time I remembered
that it was stupid of me to assume that it was, I'd sent the message...And
I've been trying to break the habit of sending about three successive emails
to get one thought across (with some limited success thus far).

We fortunately (or un-) go through a parent (always) we don't really have
much of a problem with that. I made a one-byte change to http.c that makes
sure that squid keeps trying the parent, which means if they _do_ become
unavailable, there's no waiting involved when they come back.

I _must_ remember to pester their cache-admin for a copy of their caching

Hmmm..Not a bad thought, Michael. Most people forget to allow localhost in
their access blocks..I just get the impression he was timing-out on the
request, though.


Did you read the documentation AND the FAQ?
If not, I'll probably still answer your question, but my patience will
be limited, and you take the risk of sarcasm and ridicule.
