Cached .htaccess on GoDaddy

I'm playing with Joomla, and just found official reference to something that I suspected for a long time. From the blog posting Permalinks on a Linux GoDaddy account - problem and solution - WordPress Support: "NOTE: Changes made to an existing htaccess file will be seen immediately. When a new htaccess file is created or an existing htaccess file is deleted, however, these changes will not be seen until the htaccess cache is cleared. This occurs every hour."

The problem is, you need to change the .htaccess file to make links in Joomla "search-engine friendly" (that is, simplify them rather than having long URLs with lots of weird variables in them). And it looks like a couple different things need to be tweaked on GoDaddy (judging by all the different conversation about this on various forums). So I'll have to wait an hour between each change until I finally get it right.

Once I do, I'll tell everyone how it turned out! :)
