I seem to remember that there was a way to add something to the query string for a SharePoint page that would basically load the page in a "safe mode". In this mode you could delete or edit webparts.

Does anyone know what I am talking about here?

Append ?contents=1 to the end of your query string to delete broken web parts from the page.
