Is everyone else seeing usernames and avatars today? I'm at work, Firefox on Win7, Adblock installed but not set to block anything on GZ. Just seemed to start today.

C:\Users\me>ping cdn.geekzone.co.nz
Ping request could not find host cdn.geekzone.co.nz. Please check the name and try again.

I'm on a corporate network, they could be blocking something.

Though I can't ping www.geekzone.co.nz and it works fine, maybe ping/ICMP is blocked

Open a command prompt (if using Windows) and do a nslookup cdn.geekzone.co.nz.

This is what I get:

 
Name: geekzone.co.nz
Addresses: 2400:cb00:2048:1::6ca2:ca42
2400:cb00:2048:1::6ca2:cb42

Aliases: cdn.geekzone.co.nz

I'm on a locked down corporate desktop, I don't have access to nslookup.

If it's working for everyone else then I guess it's just the corporate blocking something. It's odd that I can't even see a text username though.

This was solved. Nothing on Geekzone side or code.

My bad, a custom ad blocking rule interacted with a GZ change.
