The boards will be tweaked over the weekend to better accomodate 800 x 600 resolution. This will reduce the number of times you have to scroll to the right.

In the mean time, try changing your screen resolution to 1024x768. This will NOT break any other programs on your computer. In fact, you may really like actually being able to fit more than one window on your screen at a time!

Here are the step by step instructions for most windows systems:
[list=1][*]Right-click on your desktop[*]Click on "Properties"[*]Click on the "Settings" tab[*]Under "Screen Area" grab the slider (click and hold) and move it to the right until the numbers 1024 x 768 appear[*]Click "Ok"[*]The computer may ask you if you want to restart. For the vast majority of users, you do NOT need to restart.[/list=1]

If these instructions don't work, and you want more specific instructions, post your version of windows here, and I'll do my best to help.

You can find out which version of windows you are running by Right-clicking on "My Computer" and selecting "properties"... that will report, amoung other things, what version of windows you're using.

Hope this helps.

I have to scroll to the right too.

It makes the writing too small if I change my monitor setting

I'mn finding it easier to change the settings on my monitor/screen each time I use this site. It is easier than that annoying scrol to the right. Then I switch back when I leave the site.
