banner ads behind secure server
I'm wondering if anyone has run into this. I have a site that the majority of content is run off the https secure server. My problem is in running banner ads they are all coming from insecure servers like affiliate programs, ad networks, etc... so when pages get loaded the secure/insecure box pops up. I'm trying to find alternative ways of dealing with this. I despise frames and don't really want to do that (and I'd have to have too many frames to cover all the banners). I really can't save copies of the banners on the server because of the ad network and affiliate program requirements.

One thought I had was to rewrite hunks of code in the ad banner program to retrieve the image, write it to a temp file on the server and then serve up that image and then I can clear out the old stuff via a cron script.

Anyone know of or using a creative way of dealing with this? Thx.
