Interesting, mine is still blank. I use Firefox, if that makes any difference.

Ah, that's where the bug was!

smiley - biggrin

I was trying to find what was causing repeated errors in the logs, and traced some of them to image calls, but couldn't see what was calling the image to point it to the right place. So, a quick upload later and the bug goes.smiley - laugh

Goo in Firefox. Mind you, I don't think I had it in IE at work either, so I'll check that tomorrow.

Threads can be moved, don't worry about that smiley - biggrin

I'm glad I know where that bug was now though. Our 404, page not found page shows up if missing images are asked for, which I didn't know. So it seems that most of our errors (about 98 / 99 %) of them are actually things like the missing icon. Which is good.

Mine's showing now. Maybe it just took a reboot or something.

Oh what a good feeling it is, not just to see the favicon but to know that the bug list just got decimated. smiley - smiley

It's still broken on my work computer in Chrome. But that may be because I've bookmarked a Ripley page. Pliny is OK. smiley - towel

*thinks about the standard attempt of fixing weird things - clear cache and ctrl+f5*

These days it's not enough simply to clear the cache. You need to contact Google's server farm in California and ask them to power the entire site off at the wall.

Browsers handle icon caches in different ways, it'll just take a few days.
