Thread titles on main page cropped too short.

On the main forum page (, the thread titles are cut too short. In most cases, it's not long enough to see what the thread is about. Most threads are listed like "I have a problem with my..." or "Which do you think is the best..." so you can't see what the thread is actually about until you click on it or view the forum list. It would be much better if crop length was doubled or at least increased by 10 characters.

I'm still on dialup so it's a bit painful to click on a thread which turns out to be completely different from what I was expecting.

I agree that the thread/post column is a little too skinny. And it doesn't seem to get wider if you make your screen wider. :(
