I've spent most of today trying to get the CDN service's API to "purge the cache" of an image... with no success.
As a refresher...
When you upload images, all uploads first go to a large hard drive on our servers, which is then mirror by our Content Delivery Network. This means
that your file is pushed out to about 100 different servers across the globe. This allows us the "unlimited" bandwidth and storage capabilities to
allow members to use their uploaded images wherever they like, even on other non-ATS sites.

from our hard drive, then a "purge cache" command sent out to the CDN layer to remove all versions of the file from all servers. And it's not
I have a support ticket initiated, as I'm certain the code we have is correct. More updates as I have them.
