Site issues

I've had a lot of issues since the site upgrade; even simple things like the FAQ link at the top of the page opening a blank page and that's it.

None of the issues are consistent: a lot of reply posting where it just spins and never returns, link issues like the afore-mentioned FAQ link, and so on.

Do not want. Anything I can do?

The spinning issue appears newish and we are looking into it. The FAQ one I've never encountered. If you see it again, feel free to describe a bit. The FAQ software wasn't upgraded so that one seems strange.

There's nothing to describe; the link opens a blank page "sometimes" (I've only seen it a few times).

It may be a browser issue; for some reason my FF3 on OSX doesn't always follow meta refreshes--if Firebug is open it *never* does. This may be a Dave-only issue.

Checked the FAQ link a few times today. Works fine on IE 7, Firefox 3 and Chrome.
I agree. Here's the link:
