Cached Web pages
Odd one this...
How do I know if the web page I'm looking at in IE, has been cached by my proxy (with out looking at the proxy)

It should have been cached unless it was a dynamic generated site.
So the better question is "how do I know if it *hasn't* been cached - usually a good rule-of-thumb is if it has a ? in the URL it won't be cached.
Why do you need to know this? If we know the reason we may be able to offer better answers ;-P

A teacher thinks the cachepilot isn't caching pages. I would like a nice simple way to prove it is (other than it loads faster)

Couldn't you simply say, because all traffic is routed through a proxy, it's automatically cached?
Maybe a little cheeky, but in most cases it's true!

You could probably use wget:
(see bottom of the page for proxy settings).

It may be worth checking the HTTP headers, but AFAIK IE won't let you - only firefox.

Cheers, end up with - "its working, if it wasn't you'd have no internet"
