Just so everyone knows, I've updated Minotar to the new skin system. If you're having any issues let me know.
Added our financial details: https://minotar.net/
Don't think so, haven't tried, you're welcome to contribute the code though and I'll merge it in.

Your issue has been patched :D

Ah, it's this specific skin, checking it out now.
Read the cloudflare.com question again :P
Also try the static link, what do you get?

To be fair, Minotar doesn't use a CDN or a specific subdomain to serve our static content, we leverage CloudFlare but that's not a true CDN....
Not the bandwidth, the actual per second request rate. If you're ever interested I can sent 10% of Minotar's traffic your way for a nice test,...
