1. At bottom, "FreeDOS webring" pane is wider, than middle column, in which
   it placed, whereas in "RingSurf" pane lines are wrapped:

Easiest, what you may do, is move these panes below 3-column table.

2. I think, 3-column mode is bad idea: all columns are equal width, but side
   columns are much shorter, thus, after they "squeeze" middle column, this
   middle column now up to thrice times higher and enclosed by very big
   white (read: very contrast view) unused space. The more so, this makes
   not enough space for final panes ("WebRing" and "RingSurf").

I think, at least right column might be eliminated, by moving its
announcement contents at top of page, over menus and news. Also, left column
with menu may be reduced in width, but "Search" pane should be moved out
from columns (to top or bottom) to make more space for input field.

     BTW, I myself prefer to remove column modes at all: menus may be
implemented as rows at top of page. For example:

     Me liked, except layout and pallete for side columns.
