Hi again,
Ok so I've got two new problems with this layout
http://www.paulwatt.info/test/turn/

1) When I increase the width of the Maincontent Div from 73% to 74% to line
it up with the right hand side of the page, the whole div drops to below the
level of the leftcell div. put it back to 73% and it goes back to its
correct posistion.

2) It looks fine in IE but a absolute dogs dinner in FF. whys this?

Thanks once again for all your help! This would be soooooo easy to do with
the good old <table> tag!

Paul

You and others may access it in a different manner, but I remain
blissfully ignorant about that except for the few details you and the
other guys imparted.

So has my perception gotten an enhanced standing in your eyes, or
should we just agree to disagree and go on trying to make computers do
neat tricks?


Perhaps your perception is like that of person watching through
binoculars a naked dancer (you perv!) in a distant flat. You see
what another person - who sits (out of sight to you) on a chair
in the dancer's flat - is enjoying. This person has gone to some
expense and trouble to gain such direct access. Why would your
perception deserve any enhanced standing?

Deserved or not, it usually just happens.

Hi Jerry,

much better ways to access usenet than Google Groups

OK, I did "A very little research". I visited http://www.disenter.com/
and observed their claim of monitoring 56,000+ servers.

I searched for Ruby: it reported 117 NGs, but didn't list any
(presumably because of heavy load on their servers). Ajax: one
listing, but for soccer. C++: regexp failure. C#: 0.

I don't think that site serves me better than Google Groups, which
lists groups in categories and recommends related groups. I'm
presently registered in almost a dozen NGs on Google. They were easy
to find, easy to assess in terms of number of users and frequency of
response.

I'm glad you feel well servered by Usenet. I think I'll stick to my
"church", which I think of as the Web, no mind if I happen
occassionally to use my Outlook Express newsreader or whether a site I
visit uses a newsreader to serve me web pages.

Best wishes,
Richard


Try a real newsreader, not a web based abortion. It works much better.

You did research. But none on what usenet really is.

I guess the important point here is that Usenet requires NNTP, Google
Group is just Usenet data reformatted into a webpage but does not
replace Usenet.


Usenet does not *require* NNTP. If a usenet server is on the internet,
then NNTP is the most common protocol used when servers talk to each
other, but not all usenet servers are on the internet.

The OP isn't beholden to the web to access usenet so much as he is
beholden to a *chair* and a table or desk. It's almost impossible to
type when both you and the computer are resting on the floor.
