I have heard from the website customer service department of NYT, who
advise that the browser cache must be cleared, because NYT pages
incessantly are revised. Since receiving this advice I have cleared the
browser cache consistently before and after each session, to no avail.
My machine is dual-boot, Windows 2000 Pro and Firefox 3.6.12, which uses
the same profile as the Linux installation of Firefox. I experience no
such hang-up at meter-svc.nytimes.com* within Windows.
I am a heavy user of NYT. I suspect they are preparing a metered use
dossier in support of fees they will impose early in 2011, but do not
understand why I am not hanging up at the same toll booth in Windows.
