    Yup, does the same for me, on both Firefox and IE (a three sided box on Ff, a 'hump' in the top line in IE) - both hyperlink back to the same page.

    Is it possible to remove filters where there's nothing under them? Like the Hard Drives have filters for 600-699GB yet there's sod all under them? There's like 18 filters for HDD capacity and as they are all hyperlinks they get very confusing.

    Doug: email me at Richard dot Swinburne at bit - tech dot net what filters and/or categories you think needs adding/removing. I've already submitted a huge list to Geoff and I'll just amend and add to it.

    Or just email them directly to me if you like: geoff DOT richards AT bit-tech.net

    Indeed, I'm considering setting up a dedicated mailbox for readers to email bugs to. As you can see, there are LOTS of categories and there will be little bugs like this that haven't been found yet. Most of the time they are easily tidied once we know about them.

    And you're right - these Hard Drive filters make little or no sense. RTT is gonna check the feed shortly and see how easy a fix is.

    I'm going to order a corsair 1 GB Turbo Flash Vista accelerator (I know dabs sells them for £16 product code 4D6LDM ) so I thought I'd use the bit searcher to give you the credit, but it doesn't seem to come up in the listings (searched using keywords Vista, Corsair Flash ) but I just get copies of vista or USB/SD memory :duh:

    I've just taken a look and that product definitely doesn't exist - so it isn't your choice of keywords :)

    Not sure if it's been mentioned before, but it's anoying for me.

    Clicking the down arrow sorts the prices from High to Low and vice versa for the up arrow. Wouldn't it be more logical to have prices sorted Low to High when clicking the down (i.e. Low) arrow?

    Overall, a good product, but these little things do p*** me off :)

    Up = Ascending, Down = Descending - isn't that almost universal? :confused: Overclockers.co.uk do it this way too - up arrow indicating price ascending and vice versa

    although the down arrow would seem more logical humanly, just about every site uses an up arrow for lowest first (well of the ones i look at)

    then again if you look at an arrow - ^
    the smallest bit is at the top, and biggest at the bottom (if that helps you remember)

    On most sorting methods it's not an arrow, it's just an arrowhead.

    Look at PHPMyAdmin style RTT, that'll work.

    Now that you mention it, OCUK do use the same sorting method, but I've never used it as I've always sorted by catagory then brand and found what I needed.

    Maybe the Froogle way is the better way.

    You guys are all right, but the difference is that bit-tech shopping uses FULL arrows. Which indicates "This way" everywhere else uses the head only which indicates "big to little" or "little to big"

    For me it seems really strange that the main navigation bar isn't there any more. (don't know if this has been mentioned before or not)
