    The ironing was delicious. ( See #37 )

    It's not so much lists I hate, I love reading lists, some are fun... I hate reading lists that are say 50 things long (*cough* ) and almost feel as though at least 1/4 are just filler things that don't actually really matter, but the person couldn't think of anything decent to put in, or pick a smaller number for more of an impact.

    19) Websites that are too wide for the browser
    A less common problem these days, as web design and browsers become more sophisticated.
    Or someone upped your resolution from 600x800 & you haven't noticed.

    Or my bugbear, webpages that don't print properly [the right hand side would always get cut off] .

    Am i right in thinking this was primarily an IE6 problem.

    This was improved with IE7 onwards, but there will still be the odd website that will not print properly.

    To be honest though, it's not very often that you should be printing web pages as a whole, rather copy and paste the relevant information out into a word / notepad etc document and print that.

    Sites that are usefull to print, such as technet articles, generally have a print view option anyway

    1) 'Worse than the Nazis'
    "As an [online] discussion grows longer, the probability of a comparison involving Nazis or Hitler approaches one." So states Godwin's Law, the observation first made in 1990 that still stands today. Many online communities counter this moronic rhetorical device by ruling that the first person to make a Hitler comparison loses the argument by default.
    Hahaha thats so funny (and true)

    actually, i do print web pages fairly often. Obviously the copy and paste method works better if the oriignal page is going to end up printing across 7 or 8 sheets, but for convenience i do like to print a webpage or two now and again.
