Your doing this on purpose, arn't you TugMaster, you know questions like this confuse me and Footski !

I have to ask myself - Why would I want to ?
I've recently bought myself a new 17" TFT monitor and I want to see all 17" of it, not just a strip across the middle, I can simulate it though by putting a strip of duck tape across the top/bottom of my screen.  I don't have any trouble viewing this great sight, no side scrolling. I thought the site automatically adjusted to various screen sizes.

Anyway I've cast my vote (can you guess what it is)

I use a 15 inch Mack iBook, small screen.  Please no widescreen format.  I agree with Manxman.

This is a vast right wing conspiracy designed to take away our hard won wide screens and increase our taxed to pay for wide screens for the richest 6% of Americans.......

So when you getting your 52inch sorry forgot your in America  82inch plasma  :D ^-^


As far as I can tell a lot of sites, are now going widescreen , With my clubs website the provider changed the software and so it automaticly went to wide screen , there is a way to run both which detects what you are running and defaults to your settings I believe , but when I asked my clubs provider about this they said  No.  I think you can do it if you have your own server.. but not really sure..

I went to a 21 widescreen at home.
Next Build M.S.C Volant after 1 other.

I'm with Fred on this one!

I only have a 15" Dell LCD monitor, and I use an alternate 'format' selected from this forums display options panel, for better readability.

Cheers

I have a 13" Mac and a 24" Mac, and I have not had a problem viewing this Form so far. When I click to in large a photo it
looks good to to me. I don't see a problem with what we have, or I'm I missing the point .

Yes - they told me it was a 22" but my measuring stick must have shrunk by an inch.
