OK, I just came by using IE (which I don't often do), and found that the layout of the main page is a bit screwed up. Each of the boxes for the in-site 'advertisements' and for the updates are stretched to the full screen-width, with the ads first and the updates under them. Is that me, or an actual problem?

Ho! Ho! Ho! to the gameboy I go
To heal my heart and drown my woe.
Rain may fall and wind may gale,
But my battery is yet to fail.
So in a dank corner I will lie,
And watch the hours go sailing by.
And while I lie in this nintendo-induced trance,
I decide I'll give Pokemon Crystal a chance.

Or Opera. Or SeaMonkey. Or one of the abundance of custom browsers out there. Firefox isn't the only (or even necessarily the best) alternative out there, Blade. But more importantly, was the line "(which I don't often do)" which seems to imply that Zeddly already employs an alternate browser but for a reason he didn't feel necessary to mention, needed to use IE instead. Being a college student, labs and public access computers come to mind.
That said, I can see what Zedd's saying. IE seems to take issue with the columns on the main page. It spit out a slew of identical errors at me, too, but I didn't feel like debugging them. That's the webmaster's job.

Yeah, wanna hear what the problem was? A comma. A freakin' comma!
See, in every programming language known to man, when you make a list, you separate it with commas. If you are defining the elements across multiple lines, a comma typically goes at the end of a line. To make life easier for everyone, a comma can even go at the end of the list with no element after it just to keep up appearances.
Of course, IE's JScript is a giant sack of crap.
I put up a script to generate the news boxes at the side, and for some reason, JScript was interpeting ", ]" as an element. How it managed to do that I do not know. There wasn't a null or anything there, so it should have been like FireMonkey and just ignored it.
It didn't... 'cause it sucks.
I rarely open IE anymore, and it seems whenever I do, I usually find something broken someplace on the side. Good eye, Zeddly. * gives Zedd a virtual Pie * Avoid, if at all possible. ~ Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy on the subject of Love

w00t, pie. And yeah, I use whatever browser I can get my hands on on whatever computer I happen to be using. This one happened to be IE.
Release that which was never caged.
