On my computer, this forum is in a narrow column with wide bands of white space on either side. It looks cramped. Is it just my computer? If not, does Adagio plan to reformat this so it spans the width of a standard screen?

screen size

TeaChat was designed for screen resolutions of 800*600 and higher. What size/resolution is your monitor?

1024 x 768

In that case, the areas on either side should take up only about 100 pixels (1 1/2") each.

I run mine at 1024 x 768 also, but on the left side it is 1 1/2" and on the right side it's at 2'. But is does not bother me. 8)

You got the answer already, but I thought I'd just note that it's not just you. I see this semi-regularly at home where my laptop runs at 1600x1200 resolution (UXGA display). It seems to happen when the page has been hardcoded to a particular pixel width, effectively setting it for a particular resolution. I see the table tag here has width="773", so that would explain it -- it's set to display in a 773 pixel wide area. If you're running at a higher resolution than the code is set for, you'll usually see blank space. There's less blank space if you don't maximize the browser though, FWIW. I get about 3" of blank space on each side with the browser maximized, but about 1.5" on each side for the width I normally keep my browser at.
