It seems as if there are too many separate hardware fora. I suggest merging several of them into one or making it a single category until traffic warrants separating them. Right now it is harder to browse the site because everything requires scrolling (even at 1600x1200 resolution). Is it possible to get everything (all of the forum listings) on a single 17" screen without scrolling? To me that would be ideal (perhaps because I have a 17" display)...
OR
Reverse the order of the Hardware and Software fora so the Software listings come first -- usually they are the more popular fora and get more traffic than does hardware.
