[RC5] eyegive: failure to reload considered harmful

I just noticed something about eyegive that may not be obvious, and I
think should be pointed out.

If you visit with lynx, click on an ad, and then return to the main
page, it doesn't reload since lynx still has it cached (assuming you're
using a cache value greater than 1, which you really should since using
a cache value of 1 screws up downloads completely...).  If you don't
reload it manually, but instead simply click another ad, you will *NOT*
get credit for the second (or third, or fourth, or fifth) ad you click
from the same instance of the eyegive main page.

So if (like me) you use eyegive with lynx, make sure you hit ctrl-R each
time you go back to the main eyegive page.
