cache.log clearly contained nothing relevant

access.log contains a server congested (503) response for the cricket
directory, with the error originating from yahoo.

store.log ignored as unlikely to be useful.

MS Word document ignored as unneccessary security risk and
proprietory binary format.

Note that all attachments were labelled as binary but only the MS
Word one was and there was no information in the subject.

A possible guess is that the direct connection used less TCP
connections. Another one is that the browser used a copy cached
earlier in the session, as browsers generally cache more aggressively
within a session than external caches.
