I'd get rid of one of the side bars. The sponsor logos should fit fine
on the left. Or move the nice graphics on the left into the middle
column and get rid of the left side bar. Or something like that, I
haven't experimented to see that what would actually work.

It's half the width of my screen, and gives me a decent amount of text,
with suitably long lines (with the font size I prefer), and is generally
nice. For instance, I like having two or more windows open at the same
time. If I have to maximize my browser to be able to view a web page, I
can't do anything else at the same time, like write e-mail or use an
editor, or whatever. It's an annoyance every time I have to resize my
browser or scroll sideways to be able to read things.

The mobile browsing device I've used lately (Nokia 770) has similar
trouble. Things in the sidebars aren't fully visible, images overlap,
and the useful area for the text is very narrow, leading to readability
issues, when there are multiple columns in the already narrow text area,
such as in the list of proposals.

(This should probably be redirected to the website list, if that is in
use. Please do so. I'd be happy to expound and provide screenshots, if
there is a desire to improve this.)

Happiness is going NIH on your own stuff.
