When did the avatar limit change?

I was troubleshooting why my avatar (of several years) suddenly became a redX, and it turns out the limit is now 48.8kb?
It must have happened some time in the past couple days, although a search doesn't turn up any posts on the subject.

Is this a permanent change?

Thanks for any clarification.

    Nothing to do with me, or, to the best of my knowledge, ramius.

    Your avatar loads fine for me. Blame Comcast?

    It may be because he has a period in his url. Some browsers get angry when you try to embed that, but work fine once it's cached.

    I get the red x in IE, but not FF and Opera.

    Same here, I see it fine in Firefox but it's a red x in IE.

    That's odd though. Every URL other than rewritten URLs will have a period in it. :\

    Switched hosts, changed filename, seems to work ducky now.
    Also, I changed it through the "edit profile" link rather than the "edit avatar" link, which bypassed the size limit.

    Thanks for the troubleshooting help!
