The static objects are not being cached in internet explorer in spite of setting the correct headers.

It sets the desired cache-control and expired headers.... On firefox on repeat views it is not re-checking these files...

Any clues on what is messing up IE ?
That's really bizarre because even jQuery from Google isn't being cached. I checked in IE7 just to be sure it wasn't something specific to IE8 (or that test machine) either. This may take a bit longer to figure out.
My guess is that it is how you are delivering your base page, dropping the cookie and forcing it to re-load by sending back this header:

refresh: 0; url=http://www.paidtoreg.com/

By forcing IE to refresh the page it will re-validate any cached assets. You'd be better off using a 302 redirect back to itself.

Aha... it seems only IE is affected by this..... but refresh header shouldnt be there.... tried to fix it in php, but my php is so rusty i gave up.... was trying to get a friend sorted out with page speed things....
In your html source you mention you're looking for a php developer, is that a paid position?
No it isn't
