I posted a new IOTD some days ago but the front image in the gallery seems to be broken. A bug somewhere?
When I browsed through the gallery I found that some other postings also had broken images.

I used preview functionality and then updated the posting a few times if this helps debugging the cause.

The posting i'm refering to is http://www.gamedev.net/page/community/iotd/index.html/_/demorize-digital-signage-particle-system-r323

Looks fine in Google Chrome.
It's perfectly fine to abbreviate my username to 'Servant' rather than copy+pasting it all the time.

It seems to look fine in Seamonkey; I get the same results as in the above image.

The thumbnail doesn't load here with Opera either:

It doesn't work under IE9 either, and a proxy doesn't help, however clicking on the IOTD shows the image properly, so apparently I have a different bug than you... Where are you located, Kjell?

The slowsort algorithm is a perfect illustration of the multiply and surrender paradigm, which is perhaps the single most important paradigm in the development of reluctant algorithms. The basic multiply and surrender strategy consists in replacing the problem at hand by two or more subproblems, each slightly simpler than the original, and continue multiplying subproblems and subsubproblems recursively in this fashion as long as possible. At some point the subproblems will all become so simple that their solution can no longer be postponed, and we will have to surrender. Experience shows that, in most cases, by the time this point is reached the total work will be substantially higher than what could have been wasted by a more direct approach.

Ah. mine also looks like Hodgman's image - I thought he meant the page linked to.

The image that's being linked to doesn't exist, I'm guessing something went wrong with the upload.

I tried both Firefox and IE and it looks like the above images. Yes, it seems like the thumbnail image is not available on the server.
I tried editing the post to re-upload the image but that didn't help.

I don't know if the image showed at the beginning when I first posted the message since I edited it once after my initial post to correct a few spelling errors before I actually noticed that the front image was broken.

Could it be that the original image is removed when you edit a post and the new image is not uploaded as a thumb?
Just a wild guess...
