Since there are a couple different technical conditions that could lead to "unable to retrieve this image", I wanted to LAN trace what was happening on the wire in an instance where one or more images failed to load. Thankfully the board isn't currently set to force
HTTPS usage, since although the encrypted traffic can still be captured, you don't get to diagnose more than just basic TCP connection issues unless you're in possession of the private key for the certificate being used for TLS/SSL.
What I saw in my tests is that the issue doesn't occur unless
HTTPS was used to retrieve the images, and that during those failures Chrome reports that the web server is returning HTTP 503 Service Unavailable for the images that failed to download.
Which does at least answer one question the LAN trace was hoping to confirm: "Wait longer" is not going to help. The server already decided he couldn't answer / wasn't going to answer. "More time" is not a factor.
Using HTTP (non-encrypted) to view the same page, I could not duplicate this issue. Meaning if I use the link provided, one or more images would fail to load:
https://www.59plymouth.net/59forum/view ... =34&t=2968
But if I use the non-encrypted link to view the same page, I could never duplicate the problem in the time I spent:
http://www.59plymouth.net/59forum/viewt ... =34&t=2968
If that holds true for you too, maybe that's at least a workaround until the problem can be resolved? But otherwise, it looks like everyone is correct that is a server capability/resource issue, in some way specific to trying to serve the images up over the established TLS/SSL connection. i.e. Some limitation that is only coming into play when the web server is being asked to encrypt the data.
