programmatically visiting a URL without opening browser session

    Using ASP, is there an easy way in code to "visit a URL", without opening a
    browser session?

    Explanation: I have a page caching class. The page caching class's behavior
    can effectively be "programmed" via instructions that are sent through the
    querystring. When members of our staff update articles using a CMS I
    programmed, I would like the cache to be flushed. The cache can be rebuilt
    by issuing an instruction via a URL querystring.

    I would like the machine to programmatically "visit" two different URLs
    without actually showing those pages to the user.

    Is there an easy way to do what I want, here?

    Thanks.
