Graphics Not Loading Bug

If your Internet Service Provider (ISP) hasn’t yet updated to recognize our new static content server, you might see “missing” art on some pages today. These problems should self-correct over the next couple of hours, but we don’t expect them to affect many users.

This mostly would be visible as missing logos on the main “splash” page, disappearing bookmark icons, and similar glitches. If you right-click on a “broken image” icon and “open image” (or similar), you might see an error message like, “this site has not set up their security properly,” or “cannot reach this server.”

It turns out that our secure server system and a content distribution system we were experimenting with got into a bit of an argument. Within the next hour or two, things should sort themselves out.

Sorry ☹

We’ll post a follow-up, later, about the neat changes underneath that this “outage” is making possible, though.
