Best way to burst static file cache

Loving nginx, thanks Igor!

I'm caching static files in a very traditional way, I hope:
location ~* \.(js|css|png|jpg|jpeg|gif|ico)$ {
    #expires       max;
    expires       30m;
    access_log    off;
    log_not_found on;

I would like to have longer caching. Sometimes there is a fast turn
around on live sites and clients have an issue bursting the cache. These
tend to be Windows based clients. No matter what they or I do, they
continue to retrieve cached versions of css and pngs.

Is there a better configuration, or anything that I am not doing at my
end to ensure they get served the fresh files?
