I've recently implemented caching on a project. But, I really needed to be able to bypass the cache on an ad-hoc basis. Just on a lark I tried appending "?nocache" to the URL and it worked. This tidbit should be mentioned in the cache topic. Thanks.

Appending ?nocache doesn't bypass the cache at all. All you've done is request a different resource -- one that wasn't cached. If you re-request the ?nocache URL, you should find that the result is again cached.
