No, i haven't noticed a pattern in size.. it happens for all images
regardless of it's size and it also happens to some html/php files..
When i hit refresh multiple times, the images appears one by one.. but all
of them doesn't appear, or i do not hit refresh that many times :)
That's the stats page.. Images won't appear.. like the logo in the top left
the url to the image itself is
the image is in that folder, when i enter that in the address field i get
"page cannot be displayed", if i hit refresh or close IE and then starts it
again and goes to that url again it appears.. sometimes i have to do that
several times before i finally can see it..

It sounds like the webserver is working so hard that it misses my request
for the image.. but it isn't overloaded at all..

I asked a friend to try it, same thing happened to him. Don't know what
client he uses though.

Ok, will try that tonight.. "open 80", is that the way to
connect on port 80?
