I knew I could count on you rudy! ;)

I see it... looks like my green box is causing it. Hmm, that means I
have to make my content column thinner to allow for this, which is a
bummer. I'll have to look at my logs to see how many of those users I
have, my guess is probably enough to have to deal with this..argh.

Thanks! (no sense in printing those out eh?)

Can you elaborate? It's annoying because... is it interfering with
reading or..?

Yeah, it was easier and faster for me to put the switcher in to take
the time and play with the style sheet to where I would want it with
relative sizes, so I went the easy route due to time contraints.

Are you sure you clicked correctly? (Just kidding) You are the second
person to mention that, I missed that one, will fix it.

Yeah, think I'll whack the icon and the about the website thing. My
ego got the best of me. I think I'll leave the site by on each page
tho :)

Yeah, obviously something wrong with my query I think because I
thought I was doing that. I'll have a look (and probably post about
it ..lol)

Thanks a bunch Rudy!
