    The "Site Announcement" at the top of the page causes side scrolling when using a small browser window (and I supposed it affects them strange folk in wierdly small resolutions too)

    Not entirely sure what can be done to fix it, just thought I'd be annoying and mention it :p

    Oops, forgot I made this, and yes, I'm using 1680x1050. But I don't like to have my browser maximised. What's the point in a multi process environment with windowing capabilities if you're just going to hog the screen with one window, may as well use dos :p

    An example: side scrolling

    (edit) beat me to it.
    You can see though that it's only a part of the google ad and the announcement that scrolls of screen, the actual site itself actually adjusts to the window, so it's not actually a major problem, just an annoyance :)

    Yeah, my plan is now to eliminate sidescrolling even for the peasants that use 800x600. That is for the forums and the frontpage.

    If you actually look at the frontpage.
    The only theme is currently called Orbitz 1024x768

    This should give you a hint at what my plan is.

    Yip :D
    It's more KHTML (the Konqurer rendering engine) than Safari, either way, I'll slap a bug report at Apple, they've fixed numerous thing's I've sent before :)
