Look at the urls. They're all coming from a CDN network. Probably was down or messed up.

Folks (and Cryptic/PeeWee I gather) think CDNs are a solution but seems like most often they're not. Third party sources, especially those from outside the network) can cause more trouble than they prevent.

At least that's my take on them.

As much as I dislike these folks, wordpress.com has a decent fall back system with their CDN. or at least they did when I moderated their support forums. if the CDNs starting throwing up any 404s, the system would fall pact to their network until the issues got resolved. be it down servers, overload or whatever. At least that's how it was supposed to work. Wasn't perfect but....
