Out of the Blue

Things have been mostly back to what passes for normal here for about a week now after the meltdown of 2005, but there's still a bit of aftermath being sorted through behind the scenes. The ever-valiant Frans is trying to work though getting our screenshots script to operate properly on the new server, and Furn has tracked down several Blammo annoyances, some of which existed prior to the crash. Towards that end, I'd appreciate an email or a forum post from someone who has encountered what's described as the "editing bug" on our forums, to make sure I am clear on what that entails. For my own experience, clicking the "edit" button on an existing post sometimes brings up a mostly empty page with no opportunity to edit anything, but repeatedly hitting reload will eventually bring up the expected screen, and I just want to make sure that is the same behavior others are experiencing before anyone gets too crazy trying to track down the problem.

Has anyone resolved the Splinter Cell ad issue? I know its not a Blues problem, as I came across the Flash ad again yesterday on IFilm and it drove my CPU to 100%. To confirm it wasnt an Firefox issue, I opened IE to the same page and it gave me the same problem. Immediately afterwards, I came here and saw the same thing.

I know there's no easy resolve to this (short of torture to the ad agency who produced the ad), but I've seen this problem here before (and mentioned) and wasnt able to scour previous posts to see if there's been any resolve to it.
