Cache Never Expires?

Feb 19, 2009 at 5:20 AM
Hi there,

I'm brand new to Dropthings, so I'm just trying to get the hang of it all.  I've tried the latest release, as well as the latest SVN, and I'm having some problems getting a feed to actually refresh (RSSWidget).  It appears that the cache never expires until I shut down the web server and restart it (built in VS2008 web server).

It seems the cache is set to refresh based on slidingExpiration instead of absoluteExpiration (line 210 in App_Code/ProxyAsync.cs), which will keep resetting the cache expiration if the item is requested before it expires...and the item will never get updated.

Am I missing something here?  Why are we not using the absoluteExpiration and setting it to 15 minutes ahead of DateTime.Now instead?

Thanks for what appears to be a great app!
