Both of those are broken for me and the server returns a 503 error if I click through to the full size.

None of them work for me logged out at full size only constrained. I was thinking it was a file name issue.

edit: that's in firefox, and iron

Tested today from another location, using my wife's laptop and newly-installed browser (Opera). Tried both direct connection and proxy through SSH back to the house. Same results.

Tested a long image thread and it appears to be happening with files larger than 2MB although not exactly or consistently.

Ditto. A lot of images and animations not working for me either (in IE, Chrome, FF) just a red X. I do NOT have this issue anywhere outside this site

I don't think so, I'm getting it as well. I think its recently too because I remember not having any problems before.

OK, the only thing I've noticed is I had to hit refresh a few times for a GIF to load, it froze 3 times. It's a 22MB file so It should load in less than a second with my broadband connection.

Staying at a hotel where AT&T is providing the Internet according to ARIN. All of the examples listed in this thread and some others are working.

What does this tell us about the problem?

I can't quite get a grip on why this might be ISP dependent.

I have a laptop that I haven't used in 3 months (no Windows 7 or Firefox updates) and it experiences exactly the same problems as the desktop. Then tried an old XP computer (that I never got around to giving away) and it's the same.

On Verizon DSL today (I'm such a jetsetter) and things work as expected here.

I don't think it's ISP dependent. I think it's cookie dependent, the site for some reason doesn't think that cookie is logged in on the image servers and won't show images over 2 meg. I don't however quite know how to remove those cookies.

OK, back home again.

Using a laptop which worked on AT&T and Verizon last week, back to the same symptoms here on Cox. The only exception is that one large image tested on AT&T now works here, most likely because that image is in cache.

Do you think it would help to log out, clean cookies and clear cache?

Been there, done that. Also tried different computers, newly installed browsers, different operating systems as noted above.

Edit: Cookies would not explain why the same computer would work in two locations but not in a third. I should also note that the laptop in question is a dual boot with XP and Slackware. Symptoms are the same for either O/S. Worked in Florida, not in California.

Tried creating a new account. Same problem - large images will not load.

Got a new phone, so I tried that. If I use the Cox connection here at the house via WiFi, images are still broken. If I connect using the 4G, images load.

Anything else I can do to test on my end? Any progress on tracking it down?

It certainly appears that the problem began for me some time in September (with no hardware or software changes that would have been a contributing influence on my end) - if that is of any help to someone who is looking into the issue (and I hope someone is).

Was able to download a large file today, and started going back to known problems threads to test. All seem to now be working.

No idea what happened, but I'm grateful to the wizards who toil thanklessly in the datacenter.
