The avatar issue seems like it is "fixing itself", as it is not correct (shows only "Jerevans' avatar" as a text) when I just have posted an answer in a thread sometimes, but after revisiting the thread the avatar is there, displayed correctly. I'll report back if I find anything of use.

I have seen this happen too. There definitely is some minor issue with the new avatar setup. Not a real big deal, but worth investigating and fixing in the long run.

I just ran a script to rebuild all avatar images, that might fix it.
Works fine at home, where I have full control over proxy and firewall. So, I suppose it's a matter of time before it is "automagically" fixed on other locations.

Realize that DNS issues can be local problems.
Every ISP maintains a DNS cache, retaining DNS queries for a period of hours (configurable).
If you try to access this site before it has timed out of the DNS cache on your local ISP, you'll use the cached address rather than the updated one.
This is something you cannot control. The DNS cache will purge itself when the entries get too old, but that might be as long as 24 hours.

APUG went down, the message was from Cloud Nine or whatever it's called and said there was no cached images of the pages and that the server was offline.
Hi Ian, what time did that happen and how long before you could get back in? Cloudflare is our CDN (content delivery network). If APUG becomes unresponsive for a short time then that message may appear.

Maybe an issue here but I've never seen anything like it before and only affected APUG, I usually have multiple tabs open. I am on Aurora which is pre-release but it's been the most rock solid Browser I've used in a very long time.

This is the second time I've had the same problem, I'm running Firefox. I recieved the same message about no cached pages.

Can you guys recall what time it happened. If the site is running a backup it can be down for 2-3 minutes, that might throw the no cached pages error up. On that error page is a link to reload the site, usually clicking that gets you right back in. I have spoken with the company to say this link is not visible enough. If someone does not click the link then it could take an hour or so for the site to show up again. I'll look into it further.
