I can usually see them just fine. Once in a while I can't but I find that if I log in, I can always see them. Strangely, even when I don't log in, if I can't see them often they will show up if I wait a while.

It is quite an interesting problem you descripe. Do you have a VPN and if so, does it help if you select a different location?

They are apparently geo-fencing.

I've just tried a few different anonymising proxy servers with one of his glamisdumes.com image URLs, I can see it when proxing through some countries but not others.

e.g. At https://hide.me/en/proxy their Netherlands proxy show the image, their German and Finnish proxies don't.

I couldn't see any of them, either.

Re: The New Joke Thread

I'm able to view all of Socaldmax's recent postings. But in the past there were quite a few of his in the early parts of the New Joke Thread that are just blank. An oddity.

Somehow this seems appropriate!

If everyone was having the same problem, then I would concede the problem is at my end. I've asked repeatedly for suggestions on what to do. Nothing constructive yet.

However, it seems that most people can see them with no problems. That tells me two things:

1. You are not the center of the universe.

2. The problem is most likely at your end.

Let's look at this realistically. If I stop posting altogether, that's going to be a good portion of the jokes suddenly missing.

Let's take a vote: How many people want me to stop posting jokes?


Here's my proposal: How about YOU spend some time posting jokes, instead of whinging?

How many people want StuM to start posting funny jokes?

I vote for funny jokes!

Re: The New Joke Thread

I vote that both of you post funny jokes! Why suffer from the tyranny of OR when we can have the genius of AND!

It looks like you've figured out your own problem.

In the immortal words of one of my favorite comedians, "MOVE TO WHERE THE EFFING JOKES ARE!!" Me, imitating Sam Kinison.

I think the gd.com server is slow, I live within a few miles of the server's location and it sometimes takes 2 or 3 seconds to get a response from it. They've "upgraded" it about 3 times over the yrs, but I think it was more like replacing a 12 yr old computer with a 6 yr old computer.
