2 computers , both use IE8, 1 CSS file with same revision = 2 different look !

Told in another way. I'm having a publishing site that feed users with the same site and the same style file with the same revison. (I don't know if the contents are the same, because I dont want to hard refresh the file). Each style file got a revision tag, is a encrypted hash. Ex: prod.min.css?rev=324nhj22lkj1s32498sr32498

Users tend to only use F5 and not CTRL + F5.

What I think: computer 1 render the site correct, get's the right style file and render it computer 2 render the site with a LOCAL style css

Why? I thought that the revision tag would solve this problem?

Tried to flush blob-cache!

* NB * Suddenly the page got rendered correct! I haven't done anything so something fishy going on

What do you mean by revision tag? myfile.css ?rev=1 ? Yes, changing that, should help. Did you try to change it after you saw that computer 2 still renders the old css? Did you try with F12 (Developer Toolbar), on the CSS tab, to see what CSS is actually loaded by the page? – Norbert Dec 11 '12 at 9:26
ex on a file prod.min.css?rev=324nhj22lkj1s32498sr32498 . Each time we do somthing on the file it gets a new revision tag (hash). I don't have access to the developer toolbar on the produciton environment – Plexus81 Dec 11 '12 at 9:38
