@Gunny: I didn't underestimate DOS. It was good for its age. But if it wasn't for Windows, only us geeks would still be using computers.
It would be the most helpful if this issue could be resolved for you on the forum side, I know. In the meantime, perhaps you can find a Fit To Width button or bookmarklet that you can use (assuming your browser doesn't come with that option).the styling- for my taste anyway- the width issue with htis new forum is a bit of a pain having to scroll to read the posts
ha! i'm back! thanks rat and SJ
about the width-issue: i think the header image is too wide. so the browser tries to display it and the rest (threads and so on) just use the space. make the logo smaller/less wide and everything should work (i have the same problem because I don't use the browser maximized)
