    Not anymore!

    And I usually have about 3-4 tabs of different project logs and whatnot open in firefox. Sorry about the lost bandwidth!
    At the moment I've got that going on my 19"CRT as a second on my 1024 laptop but only till my new mobo comes back in. Although I may keep the dual displays, I'm liking it more by the day. Need to find another outlet for my other (not laptop) 15"LCD. Then again... apparently people are going through hell with trying to set up dual displays and SLI at the same time so maybe it'll end up as dual 15's on the laptop and the 19" crt for gaming on the real computer.

    Wow all that crap just to say 1600x1200 maximized.

    Still, keep the site optimized for 1024x768 maximized for when I'm on my laptop a la wireless or at school because half their crap computers use 800x600 (oh the pain!!). Note to self: virus to school that makes resolution less craptastic.

    My PC at home has 1024*768, the one at uni has 1280*1024. I selected 1024*768 because I think there are a lot of people still running that, while most will run 1280*1024. So I thought I'll just give the underdog a little upper :p.

    I also never surf with a windowed browser, my browser is always maximised.

    Well, one primary reason is I can't code that. And 2) it's just as easy to run a poll - you can't field questions etc from a piece of JS :D

    The server logs tell me what resolution everyone uses, but the whole maximised vs windowed thing is unknown.

    So, low-tech solution it is :D

    Actually, the higher resolutions are better on your eyes, unless everything is so small that you squint.
