Re: [squid-users] accelerator: serving cached objects even if 'httpd_accel_host' is down

Squid initiated revalidations of cached content gives the old content if
Squid fails to contact the origin server.

However, if the client somehow has indicated it do not want cached content
(reload request or whatever) this won't help.
