Long shot - but hoping ANdymakesglasses can shed some light….?

I designed a basic website - when viewed on a mac - its perfect - but when I view it on a PC - it shows up with everything very large filling the whoe screen, when really it should only use 2/3s of the screen….?

I've tried making the site smaller physically - bit that means it appears tiny on my mac???

Thanks.

It'll be a small something missing in your stylesheet that is required for viewing properly on a PC, something to do with width or span I'd have thought.

Are you joking? £970? The brand new 21.5" model with 3.06ghz 4GB of DDR3 RAM and a 500GB HD is retailing brand new at £950 and that comes with the new magic mouse as well. You can't add on value for the software either as anybody can download that on the internet.

Not sure about the drivers, but if you open Image Capture>Pref>camera>open with image capture, when a camera is connected.

its basically a con, not as good as one only £200 more so when people save up for the regular new macbook they go into the Apple store see a Macbook Pro for a little bit more money and think 'fuck it i may aswell get the decent one for a little bit more dough'.

i'm getting this as well, been checking daily for software updates but nothing so far. I just keep sending error reports every time it happens, never know if they actually receive/care/do anything about them though.
