        If it was the first page you went to for that domain name maybe
but as you would have seen in the log entries we are talking about
sub-pages for a domain that has already been visited.

        I have tested it by hand and the comes back as
soon as you press enter, but when I go to the browser some of the
sub-page press releases don't load 1st go. Machine is in testing
phase and I'm currently the only one using it so the load is as close to
0 as you can get really.

        Curious thing I noticed in the logs, the 2nd go at loading the
page which usually works very fast is not showing as a HIT, hmmm.

Page doesn't load so I hit Stop.
905633379.939 11680 TCP_MISS/000 0 GET - NONE/- -

I re-click the link and down it comes very fast, but not a HIT.
