Warning AO Modern just got wider...

For those that have not noticed, AO modern has gone a little wider to help display certain parts of the site better. Just as a little taster, this is how the site looks on a widescreen monitor (See attachment courtesy of Selespeed)

Re: AO Modern just got wider...

I have to say it looks pretty good on my 22" widescreen at 1680 x 1050 resolution....

Especially since i have 3 of them! :P

Ideal for watching cable whilst on a forum and doing some work you see....Well thats the excuse!!

Only slightly annoying thing (besides the mass of cables!) is the amount of bleeding desk space it uses! You need a mahoosive desk to house it all.

Right, off for a 600 or something, from c----co! Thought it had grown on my 19". Great improvement though, 'cause it looks much better.
