that image, https://pbs.twimg.com/media/DQEwHCHWsAAinYD.jpg, isn't showing up for me (pbs.twimg.com is timing out)... so this post is blank for me.  anyone else?

It's hosted by Twitter. Can you see tweeted pics?

yes, when viewing on twitter.com.  they might not allow external references - i.e. they'll only serve an image when requested by a twitter.com webpage (AKA same domain).

am i the only one?  can anyone else see Justin's image from earlier today, below "Anybody know what this thing is?"?

Ditto.

Is this happening on all your devices or just one? Only on a work network, or at home too?

it's happening on all devices, so must be a network thing (i've even checked on the other network we have here, same ISP).  weird.  maybe next time i'm really, really bored i'll contact the ISP's help desk and ask them wtf.

to further the weirdness: originally this first image (rudolf & "deviation from the norm...") wasn't showing up, but now it is.  so one pbs.twimg.com is showing up, but the other isn't.  for the second one that still isn't, it's no longer a time-out... it's just loading a black screen in Chrome, and a small black "x" symbol in Edge.  an early taste of a non-neutral net?!?

i come to the 930 for technical support.

I had changed my Rudolph to a different source, but my edit didn't affect your post that quotes it, i.e. the pic in your post is from my original Twitter source. Do you see the pic in my original post and your quoted reply?

(yes, it's a pic in a post....)

I could only see the most recent photo, not the original.  Does the original show the top of the clear plastic piece?

Yup. The other end is two square brass (apparently) electrical contacts.
