Great information that everyone should know about, when I say If-Modified-Since people even "SEOs" still look at me like I’m from another planet.  Hard to believe when it’s been in Webmaster Guidelines all this time!  I think changes in dynamic includes in pages where the timestamp remains constant are just as much of a problem only for webmasters.

Thanks Brian. :) I know how you feel. Unfortunately, I’m used to discuss topics the audience can’t even spell. ;)
