Judging by the list of "tweets" in the sidebar T'Bonz seems like a good idea.

We (well, most of us) understand that the bird isn't causing the wider right column, but due to the timing it is a convenient scapegoat... err, scapebird for our displeasure with the change.

The newly expanded right column really does jack up the main portion of the board for a lot of people, though.
Careful. This thread might get closed like the others.

Maybe we should name the bird "Dottie" after that guy's wife in Armageddon..."She's a vicious life-sucking bitch from which there is no escape".

Same here. I'm just going to focus on the board and relive the glory days of 640x480.
