Just wondering.

Recently I started seeing fun JS errors in IE8.

Syntax error
Line: 216139361
Symbol: 20
Code: 0


Syntax error
Line: 216010057
Symbol: 20
Code: 0

They happen when a promotion for an area51 project appears to the right.

Doesn't hurt, doesn't seem to break anything. Just curious.

    There's a certain Irony in the fact that it is "Bibilical Hermeneutics" which is breaking stackexchange, the site designed to generate answers to (the great?) questions – Brook May 27 '11 at 16:14
  • @brook Biblical Hermeneutics and all other area51 projects :) – GSerg May 27 '11 at 16:16
  • Yep, that's a bug in Adzerk (the ad management software). We'll pass that on. – balpha May 27 '11 at 16:19

    @balpha Does it indeed has 216 million lines of JS code? – GSerg May 27 '11 at 16:21

    @GSerg: Not quite :) IE gets very creative when making up line numbers for dynamically inserted JavaScript; I've seen that before. – balpha May 27 '11 at 16:24
  • hmm, might also be ours... we're looking at it, either way – balpha May 27 '11 at 16:27

This was fixed late last week. Thanks for the report.
