Telecom fixed line ADSL2+. Windows 7 Pro 64bit and no problems with Chrome, IE10, Opera 12.16 or Firefox 22. Displaying correctly on all.




Keep calm, and carry on posting.

plambrechtsen: I've sent Mauricio an email about it.

I think it's a combo of broken links in the page missing a "http:"


<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-transitional.dtd" >
<html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml" lang="en" xml:lang="en">
<head>
<link href="//cdn.geekzone.co.nz" rel="dns-prefetch" />
<link href="//images.geekzone.co.nz" rel="dns-prefetch" />
<link href="//avatar.geekzone.co.nz" rel="dns-prefetch" />
<link href="//header.geekzone.co.nz" rel="dns-prefetch" />


Those links are missing a prefix href="http://...

And the transparent proxy not liking it much.



// is a shorthand. It means the browser will use the protocol current for the page - either http:// or https:// 

The links are correct. The proxy not liking means it's not following standards. From Mozilla Dev:


Similarly, the link element can be used to resolve hostnames without providing a complete URL, by preceding the hostname with two slashes...


Also from the Chromium Project:


The double slashes indicate that the URL starts with a host name (as specified in RFC 1808). It is equivalent (but unnecessary) to use a full URL such as "http://host_name_to_prefetch.com/".


The DNS-prefetch has been in place for months. The Telecom proxy has been fine with it until this week.

I've forced the CSS to have another version # so it should be another file now. This tells me the Telecom cache is playing up.

Yep, I agree with you here.

I've got a wireshark trace showing the issue where the CSS was trying to download and the response was returning junk.  Which I am forwarding onto the cache people to inspect.

Glad it's sorted.

Thanks to Peter and Michael at Telecom for looking at this earlier (and late in the night). As above, forced a new filename for the CSS to invalidate the cache, so it should be loading now.

Why the Telecom cache got lost is another problem, and may be one of those hiccups...

And Peter found out what "//" means too ;)

This isn't just a Telecom issue. I am with Vibe on xdsl and was having problems. Appears to be something to do with dns with Cloudflare

Do you think it's possible that the Cloudflare Proxy is serving up some stale or corrupted pages (or the CSS file?) It's not just Geekzone I'm seeing issues with, I suspect it might be something more than our proxy server (and could possibly be cloudflare themselves combined with the proxy) but Pete will find out tomorrow.

Hi There!

Yes I think it's Cloudflare themselves, I spoke to Vibe today and they do run some services (though not all) through CF. strangely I haven't seen the issue occur for about 4 hours. I was getting dns errors mainly.

I was notified by nate earlier that he had a problem with pages showing a redirection due to DNS problems. I wonder if cache servers got "lost" with this and started serving stale content or stale references to CSS files and other elements.

Yesterday we had the same problems, but it appeared the page wouldnt load. We had to flush our dns servers which allowed us to query cloudflare for geekzone but then further queries would fail until we flushed DNS again.

We also host our website on cloudflare and have no problems, so can't understand it.

To fix the issue we forwarded geekzone DNS on our recursive DNS servers to goggle DNS for now.

Cheers
