    1024X768 - Any higher and the screen gets distorted. Any lower and it's ugly...

    Oh, I'm wondering because my webpage is ugly at
    anything besides 1024 x 768...

    Well, it's ugly at that resolution too, just
    not as ugly

    1280X1024 at home.. I like real estate to work with... and I usually run 1152x768 or close to that with games. But then again, I have a sweet 19" monitor and a sweet video card.

    oh, and one more thing... Static made a comment about how his website was "the best on the web"... or some BS like that... sorry dude, but my mom could write a better site than that. I would run circles around you.

    1024x768 is what I use right now.
    I was running on 800x600 but higher resolutions make
    you feel your screen is larger which is good.

    1024x768 - past that all the words get too small (I know there's a way to change that...) and below it everything's too big and cluttered.

    1280x1024. Sometimes I need a little less so I use 1024x768. Any lower than that and I think it is rather ugly.
    The word rap as it applies to music is the result of a peculiar phonological rule which has stripped the word of its initial voiceless velar stop.
