Gravatar.com - Not working?

@Robert Gentel,
Good point. Wait, maybe that isn't a zebra. Could it be a jackass? Laughing

This is interesting. Last night at home, I could see the zebra, which I posted just to see if there was any pro-Obama bias going on. Smile But here at work today, I'm still hunting.

How very odd.

Ok, I tried a different proxy server - now I see the zebra after clearing cache. How bizarre.

You should have mentioned that. Proxy servers often have additional caches.

Here's the deal:

1) Gravatar caches. Their cache may not clear for a few hours.
2) Your proxy or ISP can cache. This is not a typical setup but looks to have been the issue in your case.
3) Your browser caches.

To see the updated avatar, you need all caches cleared.

@Robert Gentel,
It would seem the proxy server is cacheing. And I have no way to clear it. Thanks!
