We are paying attention, Mark.

Paul, If you use a & and drop the .com it'll be on one line as in: Cabot&Rowe. Dave will do anything you want to do, though.

On my office wide-screen, the new format looks real nice, probably even an improvement. But at home on my older and not so large monitor, the forum is looking over squeezed. A quick walk around the office (where we have a 3 year mandatory computer upgrade policy) still shows a lot of small monitors. I think the critical question is does it work for almost everybody, not just those with the newest and best equipement.

Larry, I have a laptop with a 15" diagonal screen set to a horizontal resolution of 1024 pixels and the format seems to fit that.

Are you finding a lot of monitors smaller than that in your office?

Not so much the size of someone's monitor as it is the screen resolution. The forum looks great on a monitor at least 1024 pixels wide. If you have a 15" monitor 1024x768 should look fine. If you are running a screen resolution below 1024x768 then you really should bump it up to at least 1024x768.

My 17" laptop monitor runs at 1920x1080 and looks just fine.

My 10" Android HP Touchpad has a resolution of 1024x768 in landscape mode and there are no issues. If I hold it upright, in portrait mode, then the forum is a bit squeezed on the tablet but still easy enough to navigate.

CX: My home monitor is 1152 pixels wide. It's not that it doesn't really fit, it just seems to look a little narrow. Each post gets taller and and there are only a couple on the screen. Obviously getting close to the practical limit. Really just wanted to confirm that someone had considered all the ancient computers, netbooks, pads, and smart phones floating around to be sure it gives a reasonable presentation everywhere.

I don't really know what all the office monitor's resolutions are - just surprised at how many small monitors are in use in a technical office.

The more I look at it, the better I like the new layout on a wide screen. I like the symmetry and it does increase ad exposure for those who care.

Paul, I didn't mean for you to change your web address, just your username. But the new one will do you more good than the old one.

While I missed this thread, I didn't miss the change in layout. I did not like it at first, but now I don't notice it.

I wouldn't mind a name change...If I think of one can I just PM davem?
