The first image you post here is broken for me, see screenshot. I guess we are not seeing the same thing. – wcoenen Nov 8 '11 at 9:42
@wcoenen I guess we're hitting different CDN nodes. Does the second one work? – Marc Gravell Nov 8 '11 at 9:51
yes, the second one works. I edited my previous comment to point to a screenshot. – wcoenen Nov 8 '11 at 9:52
Confirmed: The first one is broken, the second one works for me too. (From Germany) – Pëkka Nov 8 '11 at 9:57
Same thing as Pekka, from France. – Loïc Wolff Nov 8 '11 at 10:42
Well, it works from the UK. So there! – Marc Gravell Nov 8 '11 at 10:43
I'm in the UK, same as @MarcGravell. I have no problems. – tombull89 Nov 8 '11 at 10:46
@tombull89 well, apart from the state of the economy, the education system, healthcare, public transport, banks, declining police numbers, bin collection, ... – Marc Gravell Nov 8 '11 at 10:48
Haha, the UK has been heaven-banned. They get to see what no body else can see any more. – Pëkka Nov 8 '11 at 10:49
Will you be at CodeKEN by the way Marc? (OT) – Pëkka Nov 8 '11 at 10:50
@Pekka I won't, I'm afraid. I am, however, recycling my devdays talk into Oredev (Thursday) and a few local user-groups (December, March) – Marc Gravell Nov 8 '11 at 10:53
@MarcGravell, yeah...that too... – tombull89 Nov 8 '11 at 11:22
Same like @Pekka and Israel here ;) – Shadow Wizard Nov 8 '11 at 11:46
@Marc awwww, pity! – Pëkka Nov 8 '11 at 20:34
@Marc, now that you made a dummy edit to that post, to enforce the stack to make it into the HTML: you're aware of More and more images go missing. Can the cooked HTML be rebuilt?, right? – Arjan Nov 13 '11 at 10:52
