I haven't used my laptop in a few days and when I opened up LJ it only loaded from the last time I was logged on with this computer, which was the seventh of January. I had to hit the refresh button to get all of my current posts. I wonder if it has something to do with IE7 I just installed around the same time frame? That's why I thought maybe it was loading from my cache. Now that I hit refresh today, everyday after this when I log on it will only load what it is showing now, unless I hit the refresh button. I never had that happen before until after IE7's installation.

This should fix it, but may make your browsing feel slightly slower. Depends.

1) start IE
2) press the Alt button and let go, the menu should pop up
3) click Tools, Options
4) in the General tab, under "Browsing history" click Settings
5) change it to "Every time I visit the webpage"
6) hit OK, then OK again

That should fix it. The problem is caused by IE over-aggressively caching the page. I don't really know why it would suddenly start. Maybe it's just how IE7 behaves, but I haven't really heard anything about it from other LJ users, so.

Give it a shot, let me know how it goes.
