    OT: Please rewrite awkward messages for readability. (Score: 0)

    I mean no offense to whoever posted the message, or anyone else for that matter. It’s just that it would be a nice service for the readers if the editors would re-write questions like this:

    Not long ago DebianPlanet rendered without a horizontal scroll bar on my computer. Why is the middle column set to be so wide that the page doesn’t fit on the screen? A key element of good web design is using page layout which is device-independent and size-agnostic.

    I like this site’s premise and enjoy reading it. I hope my critique is useful.

    Along the same lines, the 10pt font is a tad small. I have Galeon set to 130% font size to compensate. It would be more browser-friendly to use relative font sizes rather than absolute.

    …or maybe I just need a bigger monitor…

    jingle bells, jingle bells…
