    CSS/HTML - why does height:100% cause vert. scroll bars?

    In this example, both body and #container are 100% height. margin: 0; gets rid of the 8px default margin on the body. <!DOCTYPE HTML> <html> <head> <meta charset="UTF-8"> <title>Untitled Document</title> <style type="text/css"> html, body { height: 100%; margin: 0; font: 100%...

    Avoid Corsair Hydro coolers for now - bad batches.

    Mine actually came with screws with flat bladed screwdriver slots cut in them. I didn't need to use them because I mounted the waterblock/pump before I installed the memory so there was plenty of room even for my fat fingers.

    Avoid Corsair Hydro coolers for now - bad batches.

    H100 here. Replaced the stock fans that sounded like helicopters with totally silent Noctuas. I've been running this rig pretty much non-stop since Dec 01 2011 and the H100 has given me no troubles yet.

    Intel NIC slow download on 1.0Gbps, but ok on 100 Mbps

    NIC auto-negotiated 1gbps. I set it to 100mbps manually. To change that setting, I went to Device Manager, right click on Intel Gigabit adapter, properties tab, link speed. All other settings are back how Windows had them.

    Intel NIC slow download on 1.0Gbps, but ok on 100 Mbps

    Oops, don't know how I posted this in the wrong forum. This is all windows 7 machines. Only one affected like this is the only one with the Intel NIC. All latest drivers and a fresh OS install on that machine.

    Intel NIC slow download on 1.0Gbps, but ok on 100 Mbps

    New system here...first time I've ever had an Intel NIC. Internet was running about half speed so I dig around a little and find it speeds up to normal if I set the adapters link speed to 100mbps. What's up with that??? I know it's not the router, other computers hooked to the same...

    Align a relative positioned div to bottom

    Hard to tell what's going wrong when we can't see the code. Give us a link to the test site or post your code. Have a look at my full height layout demo, it sounds like you're using the same method. Maybe following that will help you.

    Need help with horizontal drop down CSS menu

    That's CSS3 stuff, the newest standard. It's not very widely supported at all. It probably would not mess up your site in a browser that doesn't support it though. The unrecognized code would probably just be ignored. Do this for a shadow in the more modern browsers that do support it...

    Thoughts on my portfolio layout

    One thing that's bugging me... had some free time so I've been messing with it. The menu_background.png matches the color (#405991) of #breadcrumb just fine in FireFox. IE8 does not match it even close. IE7 seems to mangle it even worse. Have you checked this in IE6? I don't have a box with...

    A somewhat simple CSS question (I hope!)

    It's true that IE6 has a lot of bugs and I've had to deal with all of them over the years. "Magic" padding and margin isn't one I've ever had to fix though.

    A somewhat simple CSS question (I hope!)

    Since that image is 620px wide and it's container is 620px wide it doesn't make a lot of sense to float it. We float elements so we can put other things beside them. If the image is full width of container, there is no room to put anything beside it... no need for float Instead, do a...

    Yes, that's the point. Once everything is zero'd out, if you want 10px padding on an <h4> you have to add that to h4 in your CSS.

    CSS help!

    The * is a universal selector left over from DOS days. It just means "all" so when you use it with margin:0;padding:0; it zeros out all default margin and padding. That's a good thing to do since the defaults are different from browser to browser. I put * { margin: 0; padding: 0; border...

    Take that background image off the body and put it on .container, like this - .container { background: #fff url(bg2.gif) top center repeat-y; width:780px; padding:5px 0; height: 100%; } Then center the divs inside .container. Normally, you would give those divs a width of 750px and...
