A Small Favor

I had to install a new caching implementation a few days ago to appease the hosting gods. Since then I’ve gotten a few emails reporting garbled text instead of an actual page.

I tweaked a little bit and think it’s not an issue anymore, but if anyone sees garbage, please do let me know. Thanks.
