Er? The link appears to go to a Bertrand Meyers interview from 2004.

Hi - I really appreciate what you all doing and am excited to see people do cool things with Ruby :)

I have two suggestions-
The first is to limit the display width of the articles. For users like myself who have a wide monitor it's sometimes difficult to read text that spans almost the whole width of the monitor

The second is to have a place for miscellaneous suggestions like these. I looked for a place to put these remarks other than in a thread that seems meant for discussion of the content of your article, rather than its format, but couldn't find one.

Thanks!

James Britt

Thanks for the feedback. I believe a format revamping is in the works, so perhaps the wide-screen issues will be resolved.

People should be able to send comments and such to the editor (i.e, me), though a quick look around doesn't turn up an E-mail address.

So: james.britt AT gmail.com

Just because you have a wide screen, doesn't mean you have to have your browser use the full window...
