Happy 2009, everybody!

Yes, I'm back from the hols. No, I don't know why the sidebars are doing strange things at the moment.

Very busy playing catch up after my extended absence - I'll try and post more later. I just have one thing to say: I have never been more saddened and appalled than when I saw the 900 year old, post-stroke face of Dick Clark emceeing whichever network's Noo Year's Eve coverage it was. I mean, the tradition and all is nice, but there's a line that shouldn't be crossed and, horibile dictu, it certainly has been crossed.

Which is precisely why I watched Fox News. Seeing Bill Hemmer and Megyn Kelly freeze their nubs almost made up for having to see Bill and Hillary at midnight. *yak*

I don't see anything funky with the sidebars...as for Dick Clark, yeah..it's sad, but I have to hope that if he didn't want to do it, he wouldn't.

Sidebar problems: From my perspective, seems to have been for better than a week. Sidebars overlap the center column. Sides of screen remain blank (just background color).
To attempt to help your troubleshooting, I'm running XP SP3, IE7. Popups are turned on.
Post any ideas you might get.
And Happy New Year & Merry Christmas.

The sidebars look fine with Safari, they are only messed up with IE. Hmmm.

Sidebars look fine in Firefox on Windows XP.

As for Dick Clark. Um, what to say? He seems to have recovered a bit from his stroke, but, er, what is next, a holograph of Guy Lombardi?
