A couple of concerns

Don't know if this is the right place for this but there are
a couple of things on this site that could use improvement
from my perspective. I looked but didn't see another
place to post this so please bear with me if this is the
wrong place.

Since the site changed web hosts some while back it has
become rather slow, one of the slowest I visit. OK I can
live with this.

Number 2: can someone please tell me why the text no
longer fits on the page even when there is no large
picture posted amongst the text? There are now two or
three words on the end of eack line of text that I have
to scroll over to view. On this post I'm hitting enter
to shorten each line. I think that works. We'll see here
in a minute.

Big pictures that make it hard to view the text are bad
enough but when it happens all the time....well you know.
I'm not about to leave. Am learning a lot. Does anyone have
any suggestions?

I have one. Unless someting else is done, try to shorten
your posts and pictures.

Perhaps there is something I don't know that would solve
my concerns. Any suggestions welcome!!

Thanks!!

I agree with the speed of the site. It seems to hang quite a bit. At first I thought is was my computer but it doesn't do this with any other site.

Down load Firefox. Much much faster.

Re: A couple of concerns

I can live with the speed issue. I'm not a paying customer.

But the issue with the text being too wide is aggravating.

At least on my computer linksmechanic's first post is two
lines long but I still cann't see all of it without scrolling right.
Is there anything I can do about that?

That usually happens when there is a picture. I think that is
because the picture file is too large. But it shouldn't happen
when there is no picture. And people could limit the width
of their post just as I am here.

Maybe I do have better things to do.

Try this look on top of page on the view tab, select zoom out. Do it until it gets the size you want.
