why do some comments appear in a very narrow space, with so few letters per line it is difficult to figure out what is being said ? Is there a trick to fix this to make it more readable?

    Two tricks, actually.

    The one I prefer is to play with the browser width until a normal diary column spreads out across the browser, and the RH column drops out. (I have my zoom set to 130%, but I'm not sure if that's a necessary part of it).

    The simpler one is to simply right click on the time stamp at the top of the comment and open it in a new tab. This lets you read the comment across the entire width of the Comments column.

    Thanks for asking, oakowl, and thanks for the tips, siab.

    We do have a redesign of the comments in the works, and with luck those skinny letter strings will be eliminated after the change without fancy footwork needed by users.
