Thanks for your reply, of course you are right about the content on the right hand side, my mistake, it is not all advertising but most of it is and it is rather wide and distracting. You're also right about the size of my screen, it's a 17" CRT (not wide screen) and of the 13" horizontal veiwing available 4 5/8" is taken up by the right hand banner. Which is actually just more than 1/3. I think I'll need to consider parting with some cash and upgrade it. I do understand the need for advertising, I just find it very distracting because of the amount of it that is animated, and I understand that if it's attracting (or distracting) my attention then it's doing what it's meant to do.
I'll still be here trying to get used to the foibles of the new site. Hope you guys are getting some training in change management, it is obviously required to get us moaning users used to the new site and, in the end, enjoying it as much as the old one.
All the best
