Thumbs up Thank You for upgrading this site.

Thanks for the upgrade Benzmac and company.
This new layout is very nice!!

I wonder if you guys can set up with paypal
so that with a click of the button any member
can drop some buffalo nickels your way
during times of ispiration, quite voluntary.
I've seen it on other sites.
Any way.
THANKS
:p

Thumbs up Thanks for the upgrade

The upgrade is working so much faster for me now. I think previously the traffic was routed through China and back. When I log on using my home connection it will be fine. I can actually read all the new posts during lunch now! Thanks!

Site upgrade

The upgrade is certainly much quicker thank you but unfortunately I am unable to get the full width of the forum details within my screen.Is this a feature of the new system or is it my inability to control my PC ?
I hasten to add that I have strictly limited skills in that respect & I apologise if its simply brain fade on my part.

width of forum-tigerfox

My 19" monitor see the same. Just hold your mouse button down and slide it against the right hand side border. This scroll to the right easily
(windows)
Not a big problem with me.
Cheers

What resolution are you guys running at? 800x600? if so you shoudl think about going to 1024x768 if your eyes can take it..

I use 1024x768 all the time. I'd use 1280x1024, but its just too small on the text for me. I would also use 1152x864, but I prefer 1024x768. I used 1152 on my 17" monitor, but on my 19, I like 1024 better.

I never have to scroll to the right or left, only up and down.

And I don't even have my browser window maximized. I have it at just a bit bigger than 800x600 in size.

Scrolling?

You should not have to scroll at all! The page widths are set to 100%. Normally I have my resolution set to 1024x768 but, I just reset it to 800x600 and to 640x480 and neither setting required any scrolling. The pages simply compressed to fit the screen.

I am using Internet Explorer ver 5.5. What browser are you guys using? Maybe there is a problem with a certain browser.

Webmaster.
I am set at 800x600 & have to scroll.I am on Internet Explorer4. It is only applicable to the Diesel Forum, the others are OK. Thanks for your help.

This new server is very nice indeed! I have gained another 18.2 minutes per day to work on the old gal (300E) due to the faster server.

Thanks!

resolution

My 19" ia at 1024 X 768. The last category on the right hand side only half appears
on the screen without scrolling sideways.
Netscape 4.75 browser.
Not a hassle for me.
Could be because I have set my browser
to display larger print.
