No, no chill out, chill out. I wasn't trying to be impatient - I just wondered how you were after you'd not been feeling so good. I gotta thank you for finding that offer - that cuts my internet outgoings even more for next year. I think with the money saved I'm gonna buy a month's subscription for this: http://www.gsa-online.de/eng/softsubmit.htmlevery time I make a new release. It's incredibly cool.

Well, it's back!www.bigdaix.co.ukBig Thanks goes out to Crash for uploading and hosting the site.Still need to fix a few bugs - it won't display properly in firefox at the moment, and all of the links back to the homepage seem to be broken, I also still need to add some deep links to sfxb.But the content is all there, with more to come...

Not at all - it's a great site and well worthwhile. I'm just pleased Pete and I could help.Have fixed the home links problem - the homepage needed to be changed to index.htm to stop the server displaying a list of files rather than the homepage.I don't understand why firefox is making such an odd mistake when it's so obvious looking at the HTML and CSS how the page should be laid out. DifferentKeep any further content coming. It takes no time to upload tonnes of stuff over here.

OK - Tried to edit my previous post but it didn't like it. I solved the problem with Firefox when the right-hand content stretches down. It just wanted "min-height" rather than "height" for the right-hand area. I don't care what these nerds say - I still use tables for layout. I can't see the problem with it when it's just me who edits the site.It's interesting how the doctype has to stay as XHTML Strict for it to still work in Explorer as well though (which is not quite right). Bloody Explorer

Haha... Not interested. Didn't design it myself.OK - I might install it next week and take a look but since Firefox is the king of compliance (and it works identically in Explorer as well) I suspect Safari might just be getting it wrong.

Now, you see the full extent of the things I do for our Star Fleet community... I remembered that this Safari is the new Netscape Navigator by... APPLE!!!BUT I installed it anyway. 3beta was the only one Steve Jobs would let me download. It can keep my Quicktime company as long as it doesn't try to install Itunes as well. Now - this browser, unlike is advertised (best browse, blazing performance), has seriously variable performance and sometimes seems to have webpages sent over via royal mail instead. The bigdaix site shows up great however. Maybe it's an older version of Safari that has the problem. The fonts are a little ... fatter than they should be - they're already bold but what Safari does is ridiculously bold.What amazes me (because it is designed for Apple Mac) is that you can't autoscroll using the mousewheel!!! but I dunno - I could get used to it!
