On Feb 2, Michele Foster had something to say about [thesite] Caching

Yeah, I find it a lot more annoying than I thought I would. Take it out,
I'd say. Maybe we can set up something so that if we start getting a spike
in traffic (like being slashdotted or something) we can run that script we
used to have running that created a static version of the front page.

But, yeah, that query caching is rather annoying. I'm suprised there's no
way to "uncache" the query when a change is made.
