Hi everyone,

I was wondering if anyone knew why the big Google graphic disappears every once in a while when I refresh the main Google page in my browser?

I am using Internet Explorer 5.5 and accessing the [google.ca...] page at Google.

To duplicate the problem just hit Ctrl + R about ten times. Or Ctrl + F5. You may not have to do this ten times. Maybe just once or twice.

The problem also occurs with Internet Explorer 5.0. It does not happen with any version of Opera. Only IE.

Does anyone else experience the same thing? The problem could be wiht my ISP's cache of the google page and not Google but I don't know for sure and was wondering if anyone else was getting the same error.

Thanks.

Carlos

Just tried in IE 6. No problem. Could it be a bug in earlier versions of IE?

Thanks. Now I know that IE 6 does not do this. It may be a problem with my ISP's caching mechanism and not Google. I don't know for sure. If so the problem will surface not just for me but for anyone from Alberta, Canada using Telus to access Google.

If anyone reading this is from Alberta, Canada and if they are using Telus for their Internet connection, preferably high speed broadband, can you please try it and see if you encounter the same problem.

If you do can you either post a message with the version of IE you are using on this thread and the results or better yet sticky mail me?

Thanks.
