I got up this morning to the same problem that I've been having...images not loading, dots spinning endlessly. For some reason, when the problem started, I picked this thread and the three images in the original post to use to monitor my problem of images not loading. I guess I'm a glutton for punishment because each image file is over two megabytes in size and with my lowly <3Mbps DSL connection...well, you get the point.
Anyhow, as I was slobbering into my coffee this morning I pulled the forum up on my old iPhone 6s+ and the images in the thread appeared nicely (as had happened in the past). I went through Chrome from top to bottom to see if I had something "turned on" or "turned off" that should be set the opposite but didn't find anything. *Then* I decided to load my old copy of Mozilla Firefox up and see what happened. SHAZAMMM!!!!....the images in the test thread loaded. They were kind of slow to load, but again they are somewhat large and my DSL is *very* slow!!!!
So, what does a simpleton like me do? Of course I went outside and started looking for the NSA drone that was jamming my incoming image stream!!!! Nope, didn't see the drone. Next I looked toward the west to see if the smoke signals coming from the Centurystink guy in charge of sending smoke signals my way were still there...I didn't see them, he's probably drunk again. So finally, as a really, really wild shot I decided to update the version of Chrome on my desktop computer. I went through the download/update process, rebooted the computer, restarted Chrome, opened the thread back up and lo'and behold...the images wouldn't load up. ....nah, just kiddin'
they slowly loaded up! Problem solved!!!! I can see pictures again!!!!
I've got some fresh #4 shot and think I'll sit around the backyard this afternoon and listen for electric motors whirring overhead...I still don't see the smoke signals...maybe the drone took out the smoke-blanket guy.
It's Labor Day and I need some cheap entertainment!!!!
"Who? Me, officer? Certainly not!!!"
