FWIW - I was just seeing the little boxes, turned off the VPN and everything loaded. Add that into the mix to try to figure out what's happening.

Tried that but didn't work......also don't know what these 'little boxes' are either, for me the message box of the problem posts are devoid of anything, completely empty....


...having said that, when following StuM's advice a few posts back the problem posts become visible....

Buddy it's not, and if you read back through the thread i'm NOT the only one.....

It's only from the one poster who is copying and pasting from the one site, it's only on CF, it's not all of there posts, nothing has been changed on my end settings wise and it is only a fairly recent issue...........read back through and note the others with the same issue...

For what it's worth, I've never had any issue with them not coming through, both at home, and work.

Please edit your copied link and remove the "s" when you paste it.



This is the https link:





This is the plain http:



I hear what you're saying. I can see both pics, and I could remove the "s" from future posts. However the correct answer from a security standpoint, is for them to upgrade this site to a secure site. As it is now, it's susceptible to malware and making us all vulnerable to it as well. AFAIK, this is the only site that I visit that is not secure.

Re: The New Joke Thread

FWIW sometimes I see pictures, sometimes they refuse to load. It doesn't matter who posts them. Earlier today none were loading, now all are loading, most days it's about half. In my case I figure it has something to do with the CF app.

Re: The New Joke Thread

Maybe it's time to start a new joke thread, and just leave this one for troubleshooting image display problems.

Re: The New Joke Thread

I just read the “100 things to do before you die” list….

I was surprised that 'Call 911' didn’t make the cut.

I have six goldfish named Major, Minor, Flat Nine, Bebop, Altered, and Blues.

The only way I can tell them apart is by their scales.

Re: The New Joke Thread

A very rich man had a very stupid son. His son was so stupid that he would not be able to run any business his father provided for him.

One day the father decided to open a sausage factory in which everything was automated, and put his son in charge.

Once the factory was built, he brought his son to the factory and started explaining the process: "Hear me, son, everything is quite simple here. The cows enter the system over there and they come out as sausages here. There is nothing else to learn."

"I got it." his son replied, and then asked: "What if we put sausages from here, would we get cows from the other side?".

The father answered with a hint of consternation in his voice: "No, son, only your mother has developed such technology so far."
