No repro here in Geneva, Switzerland. –  Bart Apr 9 '12 at 19:15
Reproduced specifically for android here in the US (East coast). Other sponsored tags seem to load ok (like Adobe, for instance). It seems to be tied to this image: cdn.sstatic.net/img/hosted/tKsDb.png –  jadarnel27 Apr 9 '12 at 19:33
@jadarnel27 - For me it looks like all sponsored tags. –  Oded Apr 9 '12 at 19:36
Weird. I can get this one: cdn.sstatic.net/stackoverflow/img/tag-adobe.png. But not the android one. –  jadarnel27 Apr 9 '12 at 19:37
Why are your errors pointing at the load time? Why not point at the "500 Internal Server Error" part? P.S. All images are loading fine for me (US Central). –  animuson Apr 9 '12 at 19:50
I noticed these were being slow loading, but they did load eventually for me. –  Flexo Apr 9 '12 at 20:13
@animuson - I originally noted the load times. Only when posting the image did I notice the 500 errors. –  Oded Apr 9 '12 at 20:20
Reproduced 500 in the Netherlands (eg: cdn.sstatic.net/img/hosted/dmHl0.png (Chrome 18 & Firefox 11). –  Rob W Apr 9 '12 at 20:30
meta.stackexchange.com/questions/128744/… reports similar issues observed from NZ, thanks Rob W for pointing this question out. –  Chris Burgess Apr 10 '12 at 4:31
Is this still occurring? See balpha's answer for additional things to check when CDN woes occur. –  Jarrod Dixon Apr 10 '12 at 21:21
@JarrodDixon - Looks like it got sorted out by itself. –  Oded Apr 11 '12 at 8:30
