Definition of a term in the wiki... (in General)

I'd like to add "Cache Flush" to the CB glossary. I can do it myself no problem, but I'd like to see first if someone can come up a brilliant definition for the term.

Inspired? Shoot it here, I am a poor teacher :)

Ya know how when you're going to the bathroom, and ya fill the toilet up with a buncha crap, you flush...

CB flushes it's crap at 4am everyday... takes a few minutes for the tank to refill, and forums, wiki, and stats pages are the only that don't require the water that the flush is currently using all of...

daily database maintenance that makes cb unavailable for a while around 3 to 4 am server time.

maybe we could add something about the things that get reset at cache flush. can't think of any atm but it seems there are some, hehe.

Lots of things get reset at cache flush but I don't really know it's inner workings...

Also, are these the words used to describe what happens every hour, when stats update in the standings?
