I'm seeing a disappearing text issue with the bottom menu of the site, affected by scrolling quickly down. The problem is fixed by either refreshing the screen or scrolling quickly. :?: I know it's a measly issue, just thought I'd mention it in case it's worse for someone else.

Edit: About 50% of the time the words are completely obscured, showing just the icons. I tried switching Board Styles from subSilverCSS to subSilver- same problem

Not trying to be picky... honest :]

I think that's an IE rendering issue...

You know you're a geek when you try to shoo a fly away from the monitor with your cursor.

Thanks KnightWolfJK,
I have seen that, it seems to happen when using a wheel mouse in ie.
To fix it I have removed the lists, which did contain the links.
It's just straight links in a div now.

Thanks again for picking for the notification.
Your going to be really good at site checks. Smile

Not trying to be picky... honest :]

My pleasure, glad to help... Speaking of site checks, I plan to dedicate my spare PC to Site Checks (meaning I'll load it with Knoppix, Mozilla, NS, IE, Phoenix... hell maybe Lynx). I'm undecided about 800x600 or 1024x768 for testing though, and the only stats I can find are from 2001. Anyone have any sources for current screen resolution demographics?

Wow

Excellent, thanks... Laughing out loud I looked around and just noticed Visitor Sniffer; I have yet to download it, but it looks great. I'll be using XAV's AXS Visitor Tracking Script on the new design for my site, but I think I'll use Visitor Sniffer as watered-down version to show my visitors.

Any ideas on resolution stats for the Web as a whole?

Here are some out-of-date 2001 stats Laughing out loud

Average Computer Screen Resolution
January 2001

640 x 480 8.9%
800 x 600 49.5%
1024 x 768 22.5%
1280 x 1024 2.0%
Unknown 14.8%

Source: MyComputer.com, 1/01

from http://www.clienthelpdesk.com/statistics_research/average_screen_resolution.html

Of course, resolution is one thing, but there are still other factors that affect usable screen space, such as the presence of browser sidebars and toolbars, (non-)maximised windows, etc...

Thanks... I've noticed that it's difficult to get stats for the internet as a whole that are somewhat current. On one hand, it's understandable due to the sheer amount of traffic on the web. On the other hand, it seems like an easy stat to produce.

Thanks Sven
