Not the Vin Diesel movie

I went to read a story at (via Doc Searls) and saw this ad for Dell laptops:

[Dell ad with price as $XXX]

When I went back to the story, there was no ad at all. Later, it had been replaced by something else. I guess a price "starting at $XXX" wasn't what they meant.

UPDATE: I went back to the story again and hit Reload a few times. The $XXX ad is still there, but you get it randomly with ads for servers and desktops (with proper prices) and different ones from Gateway, as well as occasional pages with no block ad at all. So as far as I can tell, Dell hasn't yet noticed.
