We got a new favicon almost two days ago that looks like an infinity symbol. Unfortunately, this isn't showing up in a lot of places, including the dropdown:

chat (including the icon on the tab):

and pretty much everywhere on http://stackexchange.com, e.g. here.

This is 100% reproducible on Chrome, Firefox, and IE on two different computers, one of which hasn't even been to Arduino.SE before. I very highly doubt this is a caching problem.

  • It's probably just a caching issue. Try using a different browser and see if it's any different. Mar 15 '14 at 14:20
  • @PeterR.Bloomfield That's what I thought at first, but no. Reproduced on Firefox, Chrome, and IE. Mar 15 '14 at 14:40
  • I would wait a bit longer if its a server caching issue. If it isn't fixed by then, I'll try to fix it. Mar 15 '14 at 19:03
  • @AnnonomusPerson It's not caching; see my edit. Mar 15 '14 at 19:16
  • Yeah, not caching.

  • @TheGuy I said server side. IIRC there's a lot of caching on the server side. Mar 15 '14 at 21:34
  • @Annon I didn't think server-side caching was possible... Mar 15 '14 at 23:16
  • @TheGuy I meant like that it needs to be updated on multiple servers and they haven't all been updated yet. Mar 15 '14 at 23:46

    @AnnonomusPerson Nope, that wouldn't be the cause of this. Servers serving up different content would be fixed in ~15 minutes (can't find the source for this). It's not part of the sprites file so that's probably the reason... there may be other places it isn't used, too.

    Most of this is just caching. Try doing a hard refresh on cdn.sstatic.net/arduino/img/icon-48.png and you'll see the new icon. The sprite image does appear to be missing the new icon though: cdn.sstatic.net/img/…

Our sprite maps and favicons were out of date. Fixed in build rev 2014.3.17.1464.
