I just have a broken-link image in the place where the disreputable stuffed moose head used to appear.

He's still winking at me.

Yeah, looks fine here. Paul, do you observe this problem on all the saloon pages, or a few in particular? What happens if you change browsers? Change computers? Change to something using a different ISP altogether?

I can see it in Internet Explorer, too. But not in Firefox.

The URL is , right? When I right-click and select "View Image" I get an error page that says "Firefox can't find the file at /ubb/moosefly.gif." Same thing happens if I open up a new instance of Firefox and paste that URL into the address box.

EDIT: Wait a bit, I've got Live HTTP Headers installed here. Let's see what it says: okay, the GET is successful and responds with 304, Not Modified. So, not a problem on the server. If I clear Firefox's cache will that help? Sure enough, the moose is back.

Yay. One should not have to browse the ranch without the moose.

I sort of figured it had to be a problem at my end since nobody else mentioned it for two or three days. But that idea was still repressed in my subconscious when I posted.
