    3. Well, it is kinda in my realm of power, but I still follow orders from Abby and Willow

    That was something I did deliberately, back when we only had four menus and were ideally designing for 1280, minimum 1024. I had to have the logo slide behind, otherwise the menus wouldn't fit and would go all askew at narrower widths.

    Whenever I do something slightly "controversial" like that, I think "if anyone complains about something so petty, they can go take a long walk off a short pier."

    We're almost due a new re-design anyway. I'll address this issue then, I think. Maybe.

    The Solution !

    It goes away if you increase your Screen Resolution to 1280 by 960 pixels ... that's what I did.

    That's what any normal right-thinking person would do, after all.

    He's actually working on something for the staff to manage our workflow more efficiently, so we can keep track of what's where and who's when.

    It was buried somewhere in your happy meal... sometimes those teenage fast-food restaraunt staff, being overworked and underpaid as they are, can't be arsed wrapping up those little fun toys and instead just chuck them in the burgers. You may have eaten it, and might be unable to decode the secret message...

    Heh, you guys really like to admonish me, don't you?

    Abby & Willow give me plenty of work as it is... of course, making the site better takes priority over idle chit-chat!

    Diablo, whenever someone asks you a question like that, (especially Abby) just say, "It's all behind the scenes".

    Heh. 'resistance is futile, you will be assimilated', etc...

    I think Eldon Tyrell stated it best ... is Abby a fan of Philip K. Dick?
    More human than human is our motto.
    I rather like the White Zombie song, too. Ye-aaah!

    I can just picture Vid Dude sitting behind his monitor, imploring Diablo on:

    One of Us! ... One of Us! ... One of Us! ... One of Us! ... One of Us! ... One of Us! ... One of Us!

    Heh, I'd think I'd be at the dole queue on a Monday morning before I ever reach Coventry!

    Incidentally, in South Melbourne, there's a street called Coventry St... I had to plot a route that included it (to dodge around the tollway), and to remind myself of the turn, I thought of you!

    You know what? I've given this some serious thought... the name AbbyWinters.com, on its own, doesn't actually imply anything to do with erotica, so the t-shirt would only raise eyebrows with people who either have a laptop/web-enabled phone on them, or are already a subscriber of AW.com (in which they'd probably give a compliment, if anything).

    So, if I were to wear an AW.com t-shirt, it'd probably wouldn't really count negatively against me in any way (although you Melbourne-based members might be able to identify me slightly more reliably!). And my family/old friends (who I've had to leave in the dark about working for AWHQ) are all back in Perth, so I need not worry about having to explain the t-shirt to them!

    I'd even go as far as saying it's a community service to wear one... after all, you're encouraging people to sign up for an adult site that actually treats women with the respect they deserve, as opposed to the sleaze-filled rubbish that they're unknowlingly inclined to.

    Get an E Tag, get abby to get it for you she can write it off on expences. Much easier on the toll ways, I take it you were off to a channel 7 game show that is taped in Coventry street
