Things were getting cramped, so I widened and brought your comments up so they’re equal to the daily blog post — which they are! Doing a wide 4-column blog design is a bit controversial and cutting edge, but I’ve been testing on different computers with different browsers and screens, and it actually works quite well for the vast majority of users.
Indeed, things like the iPad format this wider design quite nicely, and a large percentage of users now run screens that are super wide. We do have a mobile version that some mobile devices still pick up on, but some devices insist on just trying to re-format the regular design, which is problematic and something I’m working on. At any rate, let me know what you think!
Those with wider screens note the black background instead of white. With our vast worldwide readership that should save countless killowatt hours of electricity and easily provide carbon offsets for the big black WildSnow truck (grin).
