    I even run it under chrome on my Mac; just to make sure your browser is ok.

    Ok, the classical one. Shift-key and refresh should refresh the browser cache.

    I will try at home, but to be clear. I get the same result with IE11.0.9600.18893, FF 58.0.2, and Chrome 64.0.3282.140

    Works for me at home. It may be something at work getting blocked via the firewall. Being a bank, we are heavily audited for security.

    Yeah, and CV is a pretty shady/suspicious person, so I would hope they'd block him :D

    I funny enough blocked myself in the company; I accidentally went to a different port of an admin tool I'm creating and the security didn't liked it ... now I go to hard-dc.com (port 80) and get a (un)friendly remark if I want to continue to use that side I would need to raise a ticket to global security. yeah right; I'm sure they will reopen it ... NOT ...

    Might need some shady proxy server ... and port mapping ... or just use my mobile wifi router ... safer and easier ...
