Don't Use CSS Files from

The other day I was hunting for a bug in bootstrap, and I wanted to get an older version of their js + css up on jsfiddle for a demonstration. Unfortunately, the bootstrap folks only host the latest version. I thought I could just fetch the js + css from, like this:

<link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="">
<script type='text/javascript' src=""></script>

The js worked fine, but the css didn't work at all. After some frustrated banging around, I figured out why: serves files as text/plain, and Chrome and Firefox refuse to load css stylesheets with that mimetype.

$ curl -s -D - -o /dev/null |grep Content-Type
Content-Type: text/plain; charset=utf-8

This shows up in Chrome's JavaScript console:

Resource interpreted as Stylesheet but transferred with MIME type text/plain:

But only on the first page load. On subsequent loads, that URL is cached, and the error is not displayed, making this even more painful to debug.
