All day, I have been unable to display any graphics that are included in tex.stackexchange questions and answers. I figured there was something scrogged on the website and that it would remedy itself. Now, 9 hours later, as questions continue to be asked and answered, I'm not sure if it is a website issue or if my system is merely blocking graphics from the site.
While the here and now question concerns the current issue, the more general question would be how does one learn of website functional status from the website itself? Is there a place I can check to see if the website thinks itself to be fully operational?
