Clearly the BB is designed to fill a page... it seems to have a minimum
width, given the colums, images, etc etc that you can't really avoid... I'm
not clear on the terms/licensing of the BB, but I'd try a mixture of:

1. editing the <table> code(s).... it looks like the "forums" column can be
shrunk down, which would reduce the overall size.

2. replacing some of the images and larger items with smaller ones

3. reducing the font size

BTW - it's fine at 1024x768, so maybe it's *okay* for a certain % of your
user base.... it wouldn't be for my target market tho.
