Ever wondered why so many Register readers wear glasses?
Reader "Marvin tph" enlightens us...

To the Editor:

What is with the design on the main page? Granted the 3 incredibly narrow columns even on on a high rez screen is certainly a "unique" design. Of course it also makes the headings hard to read as names and such are inevitably split across lines. And you seem to have decided to have headlines sorted across then down, which of course is entirely inconsistent with the ugly newspaper style you've chosen. This problem is compounded by the fact that each column is its own table, this means the readers' eyes have to zigzag erratically trying to follow the articles in chronological order.

The page is hard to follow, read, and look at. I frequently have to look at half the headlines on the page just to see what's been added since the day before. The design sucks, you suck, the whole frikin' site sucks. Fix it before someone sues you for going cross eyed looking at your page.
