The server issues we were having should be finished now. There was some difficult-to-trace bug floating around, but evidently it's been exterminated.
Just to rehash about the blog, I am still tracking down bad ads as people complain. If you see something that goes against the mission of BA, or is a really irritating ad, let me know in the comments. Please tell me where you saw it (at the top of the site, or the sidebar) and what it was advertising. I have already eliminated most of the bad ones.
I think I have eliminated the spam filter error some people were getting. The only way to know is to see if anyone gets it again! So if you see it, post in the comments please!
Every upgrade has growing pains, and this one was rough. I think it's mostly behind us now though.
