Well if you've got nothing better to do,

you could go back and edit all those long lines.

That would get rid of the scroll bars on the thread.

Happy editing!

There are scroll bars for you? Hmm...my guess is you have a lower resolution then I do, but okay, I'll try to shorten them even more.

What is 8 times 5?
