Image changed; it actually changed!

  1. I don't know what's up with this, but it appears an image I had uploaded, which I took from this blog:

    And specifically uploaded to WordPress, has changed completely into one with three black bars across it. I put it in this post:

    It's a gif:

    Looks to me like, instead of a dolphin comic, I've got three big black bars. I've got a gif working just fine in a post a few posts later:

    and the gif there is

    They have both been resized. When I go to the "used to be dolphins and now is bars" image URL, the favicon changes to the black bars as well.

    The blog I need help with is

  2. and that gif appeared perfectly normal an hour or so ago.

  3. I suppose this thread went to spam because of all the links?

  4. Not spammed. I can see the picture just fine in your blog.
    Did you fix it?

    (multiple links don't seem to trigger the spam-trap lately: it's random.)

  5. Cookie dance?

    (fascinating youtube in that post—i didn't want to watch it 4 times…)

  6. Nope, didn't work. I guess I'll just have to wait till all the images settle down or something.

    There's one in this post that's going weird as well: just one, sometimes it's there, sometimes it's a big black square. That's particularly odd since it's hosted at photobucket:

  7. @raincoaster Those images all appear to be loading correctly for me now. Are you still having trouble with those images?

  8. All good now.

    I've only seen pictures change on other blogs when they want to protect their images from being taken. But that's weird. ^^

  10. I think it was a computer problem. My desktop wallpaper changed to those stripes too!

  12. Virsus?? Yes, it's called Windows.

  13. Yep.

    You're on Windows raincoaster? I've been using Windows since day one. I had viruses galore with the first computer because I had no idea how to take care of it. Clicked every link and opened every email. Now I know better. I also now cut&paste links and open them in new tabs. But the software I use is Windows Defender, AVG free, Ad-Aware, Spyware Blaster, Spybot Search & Destroy, and Super Anti Spyware. Update daily and scan all daily. I haven't had any viruses since. The only problems I've had are when the computer itself has problems.

  15. I use AVG at the moment, and the consensus is that it uses so much RAM it constitutes a virus itself.
