Are you going to replace the lady at the top left of the site oxy? She made things so much nicer around here.

I think we all started getting so nasty right about the time she went away.

Deprivation will do that to absinthe-besotted horn-dogs like us.

I'd be more concerned about the dark green mass in the top right.

Seems that could blend much more nicely, even do it on the left side too and make it even. It draws too much attention to a blank space.

I think the nastiness was just a nascent parasite, waiting to be sprung, sort of like the "Alien".

But perhaps the disappearance of the lady served as a catalyst that hastened the uglification of our pysches. (Damn, I think I've imbibed enough Edouard!).

One of the problems with the Lady in
the Lozenge was the way the page
was loading the image. With people
sitting there hitting "reload" every
5 seconds it really did a number on
the bandwidth.

Also she was obscuring some of the controls.

I remember that was the reason for it in the first place.

But now that we're under new management...

hehe

I was just suggesting, thats all - that way the banner could be made to expand to whatever the size of the browser is.

While we're on the topic - anyone using firefox? Seems the width in the CSS file either for ipbwrapper or the header is incorrect, as it allows you to scroll a good 800px+ to the right of the banner, even though no content exists there. I dont know if it happens in IE or not, but might be worth lookin into.

And if you're worried about bandwidth, why not disable the redirection pages? Would save one less page load, and one less image load each time someone does a search or anything like that.

The only thing I use firefox for is 'pornzilla'

Oh yeah! I see what you mean.
Firefox doesn't like some of the
blog stuff either. Kallistis Blastmilk
and Biggles Meathenge get all
jimmied up in FF.

LOL pornzilla

I like firefox, but it sure is frustrating trying to get a site to display identically in IE and FF, that's for sure.

I haven't used anything but Firefox for six months or more, and I never even noticed whatever people are complaining about. One thing I have noticed here for the first time ever is the occasional error where the page won't load at all - instead it's a long text error message - it seems to happen when a lot of people are on the site at the same time, which by the way is more than I've ever seen before.

That is probably a limit set on database connections or something.
