Oh... That's because the Loooong hyperlinks are not wrapped by the browser. The alternative is just apply the link to a word or sentence instead of pasting the actual link.

Thanks,
BTW, is the ad meant to be in the quote like that?

Just wondering again, sorry

The quote is just a box around a paragraph. The is just to be on the same space as the first reply on the page, but again, browsers don't wrap the box.

A bit unrelated to this... What DNS are you using?

Interesting. That Amazon tower ad on the bottom should be empty if you are visiting from New Zealand...

Could you please ping cdn1.geekz.com and post what's the IP your PC sees?

"Ping request coud not find host cdn1.geekz.com. Please check the name and try again."

Edit: Time to hassle TCL again? ;P

ping -a didn't work either

Interesting. That ad should be empty, so it's probably using a cached version. Just to know ;)

Glad I could be of use! Tweet to TCL and tell them to clear their cache? (this is a 2-week-old install of XP from when I had a holiday)

No need, I am on TCL and I see empty ads, so it's probably your own local cache.

Kewl, cleared my cache and now have a big grey box where it used to be! Sorry about the hassle!
Have you changed that bit in the last 2 weeks?

A couple of days ago. No need to load an ad there for NZ traffic so loading up an empty space instead.
