ok let me say my main gripe again and someone please tell me if there is an easy way to do it now...

lets say i want to search for all posters for pearl jam.

then just scroll through them and easily see if they are in my in search or my collection or in my for trade??

it used to be simple since when you'd search youd see a letter next to it colored in...

right now as i see it it is hard to do that...

just looking in my ISO or my collection will not show me potentially new posters that i dont have and then when i see a new one in a general search it isnt easy to remember "did i add that to my ISO" and then you have to go look...

this part really is frustrating, as it was SO simple before...

cant you just bring the letters back next to the images when you do a search?? please??

Next to the search box is another drop down (availability). In that drop down you can select the results you are looking for (Not in my collection). That is far more powerful than the previous way of doing things since you don't have to wade through stuff that you already have looking for the needle in the haystack. You can just get the needles now.

Seems like theres a problem with the stylesheets now...? :?:

Left column overlaps the middle column, regardless of what "new" style page Im on; be it the members portal, the front page, or when making this forums entry.

Im using firefox on ubuntu linux with my reolution at 1600x1200.

Also, and this is nitpicky pet peeve stuff, all meant to be constructive, but on the pages with the GNU content license stuff, howcome the license is centered, but the rest of the page is left justified? See images ebeans 1 and 3 for what explanation. Its really tough on the eyes.

Thanks for taking the time to show those photos. I reworked the page structure some more. I hope things are better for you now.

Thinking this must be related but it wasn't doing this with IE (which is what I use basically all the time - I know, bad me) earlier today but it's doing it now. Tell me how and I'll take a screen shot for ya if it helps to see.

So all good now? I know for up to an hour some users will experience issues because their browsers cache the style sheets. I don't have control over that.

Nope, mine was fine, went bad for about 10 minutes, then back to "normal". More than satisfied with the service :twisted:

Mine doesn't look all jacked up like that and I run Firefox in Windows XP with 1600x1200 resolution.

My latest job for the past year plus is a solution architect at what is probably the largest mobile web provider in the world now. If you surf on a cell phone, then chances are you are using some of my architecture. I learned a few things there and had decided that when I finally found the time to rebuild this site, it would have the more modern "table-less design". While, most of it still is, I abandoned it in certain places like in this case because f'n Microsoft refuses to comply with the standards and we have a commitment to the users to provide a compatible interface. Unfortunately, compatible really means lowest common denominator.

Yes. Mine appears to be completely fixed, now. Thank you for your efforts, Thomas.

why yes I do!!!

Verizon charges me $5 a month plus airtime to surf. I can google stuff in my car, or walking down the street or in between throws on the disc golf course! Kinda handy for settling bar bets too!
