Joel Spolsky writes articles on Inc.com and regularly links to them from joelonsoftware.com. Whenever I try to read those articles from work (for example, this one), I see a blank page and the following in the title bar:
why-circuit-city-failed-and-why-bh-thrives.html (GIF image, 1x1 pixels)
1) It doesn't matter which browser I use
2) I am able to read the articles from home.
Yes, I have brought this to the attention of the folks at Inc.com and even provided a traceroute, but haven't gotten an answer yet.
Now I'm just curious: what could cause a page to be "seen" as a 1x1 GIF?
- I checked with our network guy, and he says we don't filter any sites.
- I had the same problem one day trying to load, from work, a Rails site I'd been building from home on a paid host site. (Right now it loads fine.)
