Default It may just be my demented computer...

But I can never see the entire board, one side is always cut off.
Does anyone else have this problem, or know how to fix it? It's not a major problem, just kinda annoying.

I'm guessing you have a resolution of 800x600, which is just a bit too small for this forum. I'm not sure why, other phpBB forums I've visited supported 800x600 resolution.

He'd rather be called sir.

You need a lab coat to induce that effect, Zeke.

Will it screw up my computer more than it already is if I change the resolution? I seem to recall doing that by accident once, and ending up with my computer looking like one of those ones for people with partial cataracts.

Careful what you do with the resolution. You could make things realy realy tiny or depending on the size of your monitor cut of everything except the info box. Ok well I could but then I have no idea what I'm doing.

It's no joking matter. Piles can be very painful indeed.

Anyway, if Zeke is the Master, who is the Apprentice?

As I also have no idea, I think I'll just put up with it. I just miss out on seeing most of peoples avatars, and getting really confused about who's saying what, but at least I can see the window properly.

I looked at buying that book....but I already had several....Including Going Postal which is a very good book, incidentally. Lord Vetinari is at his most evil......Which is nice....and we find someone who almost matches his deviousness......
