Out of the Blue

In what's starting to take on that surreal nightmarish quality, reports of further advertising problems rolled in yesterday. After cleaning up the mess from my head exploding, I am endeavoring to address this once and for all. On a positive front, at this point the brain trust at advertising high command seems as alarmed by problem as I am, and are committing to removing every external campaign that could be causing problems so that this can be straightened out (you may well experience blanks in place of some of the ads here as this is worked through). The necessity of the advertising here has been discussed at length in the past, and the level of understanding most people have expressed about this is heartening, making me feel that much worse about ads that are causing people problems. My sincere apologies.

I can only hope that the next time I discuss this issue, it will be because this ridiculous situation is resolved.

there's still a place for line-based editors like vi

Strictly speaking, vi is not a line based editor. ed is. vi is a screen based editor. sed is a streaming line based editor. And emacs is its own OS.
