screen shot of "Invalid" URL

I am experiencing some strange behavior with the validator today.  It is telling me that pages, which I know are valid, are not.  There is no additional explanation like there would normally be for a page with errors.

What is even more strange....  a co-worker pastes in the same URL, and it shows as valid for her.

Any ideas as to why the validator is behaving this way for me today?  I've been using it for nearly a year and I've never seen this sort of thing happen.  It started today.  It is doing this for many URLs for me.

I have attached a screen shot so you can see what it looks like.

So, get this; I had already attempted clearing my browser cache, so rebooted my (windoze XP) machine and had three spoons of chocolate chip cookie dough ice cream.  When it settled down, I pulled up the validator, and now it seems to be working normally.

So, do you think that having the ice cream fixed it?  :)
