Cache Problem

Cache Problem

Cache Problem

I'm building a guestbook using director, and I'm facing a "not reading the latest file" problem.
I use the getNetText and postNetText to read from and write to a certain text file.

When I write a message, the text file is being updated, but the problem is the Shockwave movie doesn't seem to read the updated file. It keeps reading the file when the movie first load.

But whenever I edit the text file, or upload a new movie, the movie will update.
So my guess is that the movie is reading the cached text file.
I tried using clearCache under the "on startMovie" handler but then it doesn't even read the file anymore.

Anyone knows the solution to this problem? Thanks!
