This is odd, everytime I load the site up then I'm seeing very small font sizes right through from the mobo.org page to the forums. Not seeing this on any other site and it only started today. The mobo.org front page, the one with the reviews is unreadable as the letters are broken up and shrunk right down. The forum is not too bad, just about readable. I'm using a 24" monitor running at 1920 x 1200 and all of my other apps are working fine. I'll post a pic soon.

looks fine to me here, but I don't full-screen my browser, either.

Well that's weird, I tried it with IE 6, the only other browser on this machine and the page won't load at all....I can't get the cached version loaded either. I only use IE for one specific site but I tried a number of sites like BBC News, Sky News and they load fine both with IE and Chrome. I updated Chrome but the font size is still way too small.

I do have it full screen, photobucket has scaled it down for some reason.

After a bit of experimentation here's what I'm seeing, IE6 page won't load (on a few computers), IE7 on my wife's laptop, loads O.K, looks normal, Google Chrome, still small fonts. I forgot that I have AOL 9.0 on this computer and going through that to the mobo.org site is fine. Seems the problem is with Chrome. I'll take a look at the settings next

EDIT, Using the Zoom feature on Chrome fixes it.

The home page isn't set up for widescreen, that would be way, way too much work to scale everything to all the different screen resos. Technically, I still run mine in 1240/1080, so I can see several windows at one time, and it looks fine there. The forum itself can scale, since it's technically one image wide, instead of what, six?
