    Hello just wanted to give you a quick heads up. The text in your post seem to be running
    off the screen in Internet explorer. I'm not sure if this is a
    formatting issue or something to do with web browser
    compatibility but I thought I'd post to let you know.
    The layout look great though! Hope you get the problem fixed soon. Kudos
