My gold stars look better than your grey stars :p

Did you end up getting any of those digital thermostats?

It means you have zoomed in or out of the page and it's doing something funky to the images.

Yes, if I stretch Internet Explorer windows wider the bar(s) move left or right to the next or previous star or  disappear and reappear.

I thought it had something to do with ones progress to the next star :-)

Something weird going on with your IE then. Resizing the window doesn't break anything like that for me.

Ah yes resizing a zoomed window has an interesting effect on them.

freitasm: Press CTRL 0 and see it disappear.


Ah, I see! When one uses Ctrl + to make the text bigger it introduces the bar. Ctrl 0 goes back to the default size. So if I want to use that I better get new glasses.

I don't mind the funky bars - it's better than buying new glasses. Long live Ctrl +
