    this probably has been asked before, but i wonder if there is any plan to give us the space on the right side of the page. its a little irritating to me to see that space unused when i have to scroll and scroll to see all the comments on a hub.

    i don't mind, as for the first time i actually *have* that many comments on one of my hubs, but as i said, it feels irritating to waste the space.

    just asking.

    Less space can sometimes = more clutter!!

    I used to always ask this question...people used to get pretty heated in theri responses...usually it came down in trusting the almighty yieldbuild and being afraid of people turning their hubs into myspace.

    I still wish for more adspace on the lower right myself --I want people to actually read a hub and then exit via a relavent link ....not leave by ad click before reading at all or not having an easy exit option relating to ads

      C'mon 14' monitor! - i have read your must have looked at a lot of screens to learn your SEO knowledge and write so many hubs.

      Live a little and splurge on at least a 20' !

      You can get huge CRT monitors for less than 20 bucks if not free, from local classifieds and thrift shops...people are always trying to get rid of them (and they are not supposed to be trashed)

      If your main PC is a laptop - you can set up a larger monitor to use as an external monitor while your working from home, the cord you need is less than 6 bucks on ebay

      I would retire from internet based work if i had to look at a 14' screen all day!

        LMAO - yup but then  I wouldn't be able 2 sit on the couch with the laptop on my knee in front of the air con! 

        Yes if we end up somewhere more permanent than the current furnished rental I would probably go for a 2nd screen - that would be more useful than a huge screen - I have a part-time job which provides a 21" screen - and to be honest its tooo big - being able to have some programs run on a second screen would be useful though!  I guess  I shouldn't admit to only haveing a gig of RAM then!

        In fact  I will have a problem at some point because many of the programs I use dont run under  Vista - I also find my partners new laptop runs vista and its slower than my old one 1.9Ghz pentium running xp!

 vista is a bloated failure.....did you know its preset to use 30% of your hdd for system restores! I think its just part of Microsofts scam to keep getting people to upgrade their systems - if you have a 250g hd and 30% is being used as a restore and their bloated processes use up your processor -you think, yeo... i need a new computer...nope they just made a crappy product!

          Windows 7 is available as a beta for download already...i know lots of people who are using it happily..they claim it has the smoothstyling of vista but a sleeker footprint like xp

    I don't think it depends so much on inches as screen resolution. I'm on a 14.1 inch diagonal laptop with a resolution of 1280x800 and nearly half my screen is white space on HubPages, and quite a few other places as well.
