Future date avoids download?

    Hi all.

    I have a simulation on my webpage that requires very fast replacements
    of one gif with another. I have preloaded my images. That caused a
    vast speed improvement. It still is not quite fast enough, however. I
    notice that it is completely fast enough when I tell my browser not to
    check whether the files are out of date. Of course, I can't tell my
    user to change his browser settings.

    If I give all my gif files a date in 2007, will my browser (or some
    browsers) decide that they don't need to check for a newer version? I
    could test and find out, I suppose, but the difference is subtle and
    depends on whether my ISP is having a good day. Has anyone tried this?


    Regards,

    Rick

    Hm. Interesting idea, Dr. Clue. Sounds challenging, though. Is there
    an example of this "shuffling rather than loading" on line or in a
    book?
