Popups that point to main page?

I've been getting a popup that just shows the top right corner of the main page. It might just be me (I usually use a popup stopper but have it turned off for this site) but I thought someone might want to check it out.





(Sorry for the huge picture, I just wanted to show what happened.)

Good taste in reading material!

Actually, I get that too and have been meaning to ask about it but always forget.

It's probably a popup window that's pointing to a non-existent page on this server. Geoff configured things so that instead of seeing a 404 error if you hit a page that's not found, it redirects to the front page.

The weird thing is that it causes that strange pop-up seen above and then, because the front page is loading, it sometimes brings up another pop-up with the "subscribe to DVDTalk" forms in it. pop-ups spawning pop-ups. Wild!

Ah I know what's going on. This is the subscribe pop-up that you get only 1x when you visit the site. The file that it called wasn't in that directory. All fixed
