Something with my account. It's the same from different computers, browsers or different IPs. Resetting password didn't help. I'll take a break. Perhaps it clears soon.

Both those pages are displaying correctly for me.
I think they use some sort of distributed web server. Possibly the one you're connected to is stuck showing a cached version of that page.

Looks like it's something of this sort. It is interesting that they assign servers on per-user basis.

It has cleared up now.

More likely one server per region.
One or two probably handle all the US, and it would be a separate one for Asia/Australia.
