I'm a sysadmin.. Just checked it on half a dozen or so Macs and Pcs, clearing server and computer cache first. Then I checked my home computer. It's the site.

I was sympathetic at first, but now it's just ridiculous. Web design rules:

1. Make sure the site actually works before making it live.
2. Simple is good - make sure the average user can actually use it
3. Use common sense. Unless you're getting paid a shit load more to put ads to the left of the content, don't do it. How do we read books? Left to right, and these ads are distracting like all hell.

I know how complicated upgrading code can be, but you can actually setup a test server first to wipe out most of the kinks first. It's not that hard, just requires a little more effort. Hell, you can even get websites that emulate what each and every single browser will draw when you visit it. I suspect with all this mucking around, you'll loose a few users...

Given all the changes to the nav bar working/appearing/not appearing in the past few hours, I'd say it's what they're working on.

I can now mouse over where the nav bar should be and click on the "links" :)

If you really want to show us all your video, you could post it on youtube and link it across here temporarily?

Loving the new navigation bar by the way! It's a lot more intuitive and you know exactly where you are in the "channel" structure :thumbsup:
