See image below, I don't remember what this text should be, but it was in English the last time I went to the site. (rev 2013.12.16.1237 - not sure about this number, I might have copied the wrong window)

    @ChristmasUnicorn - I can't reproduce it too... I think it must be already fixed.... I did a control refresh before I posted, honest!\ – Hogan Dec 16 '13 at 19:34

    @AmalMurali - That is not a problem, I'm happy to have it fixed. Like most Americans I get scared when I see text on a web page that is not English. – Hogan Dec 16 '13 at 19:38

Oops. This was cached in our global cache without respect for language in the cache key. It's fixed in the next build (rolling out now).

I'm sure there are more of these we never thought of since it wasn't a problem before...they'll be fun.

  • But what determines what language we see? Why nobody else saw it? – Shadow The Curly Braced Wizard Dec 16 '13 at 20:22

    @ShaWizDowArd It depends on whether the very first request to a server that has an empty cache goes to br.so or anywhere else. The latter is of course much more probable. – balpha Dec 16 '13 at 20:24
