Web Page Caching at OSCON

Somewhere along the path from my laptop here at OSCON to the kruckenberg server there is a machine caching web pages. Discovered this this morning after I created a weblog entry and saved it. No matter how many times I reloaded my site I couldn't get the new entry to show up. Tried a trick I've used in the past to get around the cache and found that the new entry was indeed there, but requests for my index page were not getting to the kruckenberg machine.

http://mike.kruckenberg.com/ - loads a page cached from yesterday
http://mike.kruckenberg.com/?1234 - loads the new page

Someday I'd love to get a detailed tour of caching practices.

I should be grateful that I actually have a network connection, something I couldn't get all day yesterday.

UPDATE:
The caching is not happening from my hotel room via the high-speed connection the hotel provides.
