You can see the sidebar banners via a widescreen monitor.
And yes its ABVOVETOPSECRET.COM
Never noticed it myself cuz I ignore sidebars, if they have something in them or are just blank.
If you have a standard 4:3 monitor, doesnt matter what your video card can spit out in resolution. The image will still be 4:3. The video card knows
your monitor aspect ratio for its screen and will resize the input so that it fits the screen, just like some movies that are modified and "formated
to fit the screen"
Wish all websties now would have their layouts for widescreen. 4:3 is so outdated and will be a thing of the past come February 17, 2009, when
officialy all analog tv broadcasting which is 4:3, goes into the history books and HDTV digital broadcast tv takes over with its awsome 16:9 aspect
ratio..WIDESCREEN!! YA BABY!!!
Websites could code their layouts so they detect the resolution of the users monitor and adjust accordingly for 4:3 or 16:9. But I think that will be
pointless once widescreen tv and pc monitors are the majority in use.
The widescreen is already a majority on laptops.
