I would think a Mac which has far less glitches and technical problems as well as viruses would be more practical than a PC that crashes every 10 minutes. I'm so tired of Windows after I bought a Vista laptop two months ago. Never buying another PC again now that Apple makes computers that run Windows based products.

Maybe I'm misunderstanding you, but are you saying you are going to run an Apple box with Windows so that Windows will be more stable and secure?

Oh trust me I am very careful with PCs. I maintain and clean them every single week. But still have problems.

Menyak has implemented it on the Football and Hockey sides because he wanted to make sure there wasn't any backlash with the code that I removed for the fix. I'll give him a PM to see what's up. For the most part that's the only thing I've ever had problems with on Safari. Lately Firefox has been giving me problems only when posting, I hit submit and it always brings me back saying I can't post right after I already posted. So I just switched back to Safari. I do warn if you want to upgrade to the Beta, Yahoo Sports is really sluggish at times on it. But other than that I don't have problems with Safari that much(other than CSS loading late, common thing though).


i'm still experiencing a big empty gap at the top of the pages on my mac's safari. perhaps windows safari doesn't have this problem while the mac one does? the thing is it doesn't happen on every single page here, but for the majority of pages it does.


I'm not sure about the Windows, only because I have a mac at work and 2 macs at home. But the problem inlies in the coding of the forum. There's an extra table row at the top that is forcing it to drop and move over on Safari, but every other browser seems to ignore it. Check out the Football side, and then just hit the log-in, you'll notice it's at the top and not hanging in the middle. It's been that way since the switch over on the dark side here, but I asked menyak if I could have a go at fixing it and it worked on the football side. He probably hasn't gotten around to doing the baseball side yet since he wanted to know for sure that there weren't any backlashes, but it should be done in the forseeable future ;D


Should be good for you now BDF as it is for me ;D
