I am truly sorry you are having trouble with the ads. We are listening. We do care. They are actively working on solving the issues. Unfortunately, I cannot see the issue because it isn't happening for me but we are working on it. I promise.

I don't have any issue with the ads either, but that is only because I run Adblock Plus, and have it set fairly aggressively :-)

As for the OP's problem, I would get a pro to weld it, and check the integrity of any other critical welds while they're at it--properly done, the welds should be as strong as the metal being joined.

yep, either a pro to weld/braze it OR buy a new 1 - chances are new is less $, mstrlucky

guys, we often see apron/vest stores listed as selling ' GOOD ' goods ? i'm bettin' it came from there - its was cheaper than specialty railing, available right then when you wanted/needed it, & certainly the store was closer to you,,, IF true, its likely chinese pot-metal & can't be properly repaired.

this railing's original price is probably nowhere near the cost of well-built railing but we all buy there,,, many of us don't even realize there are different grades of power tools - apron/vest & pro - same w/lumber

its no consolation we've got to replace 87 condo stair railings that came from the same place,,, good luck !

The problem seems to be related to the proportions of font size. If I zoom the text big enough to read the post comfortably the ad sizes will overlap the text.

Also, for me that bright blue default scheme hurts to look at. The 2013 one is much easier on the eyes.

Strange, if I increase or scroll the default screen size, all the ads disappear. I am on Windows XP Pro and have my screen resolution set as low as it will go, I don't know if that has anything to do with it or not. If my screen default is 100% the ads over lap the screen, so I increase the default to 110% and I am good to go.

We know it isn't the Admin now, it is the Techs who aren't getting it right.

It's possible it's more browser related. I'm on Iceweasel (Debian's Firefox) and zoom in or out. The ads and photos on the right get bigger and the text in the posts increase while the text column gets narrower until it gets overlaped by the photos.

With Chromium (Linux Chrome) the same thing happens until the ads disappear but the font is huge at that point.

My android tablet does pretty much the same with the its' browser.

That's absolutely the problem. Most websites look best in 1024x768 or higher. If you have it lower than that, I'm surprised that this is the only site causing issues.

There's also a DIYChatroom mobile app for those on iPads and Android devices.

They may look best at those resolutions. But a properly designed website will either shrink to fit your screen or the screen will have scroll bars to move around and view it. Stuff should not be overlapping because of screen size.

i agree about have the rest of that rail checked. that should never break, for ANY reason.
what you have is a fine example of what is called a "cold weld". it looks and seems to be a good weld, to the ignorant. but it is little more than glued together. just today, i had to fix someones cold weld. my weld would not break if ran over by a train, literally.

that fix is not diy for a nu-be.

That would be a Tig weld and a lot of prep work to get it down to bare metal then tack it and then work the cup in a very tight spot.
