Topic: Memcache-client can't be accessed anywhere

I've really pulled my hair out on this one.  And documentation is almost non-existent.  Please, please help.

I've been using memcache-client for session stuff for about a year.  Works perfectly, no hiccups.

Now I would like to cache static query data in memcache.  But I can't access the Cache object from ANYWHERE.

hope that helps.
