IE 6 Sidebar Bug Squashed and Other Visual Enhancements

I noticed that the right sidebar was dropping below the content when using Internet Explorer 6. It took me forever to isolate and discover a cure for the ailment, but it's now finally done. Hurray!

I've also started to tweak the typogragh and other stylistic components of the site. Hopefully, VIN will be even better looking than ever after I finish tweaking the details.

Pardon the Dust

A major upgrade is in progess here at Value Investing News. Please pardon us while we get things set up. Most features should be functioning now, but things are still a bit messy.

I just added a new feature to Value Investing News that some of the professional investors here might find valuable. I've added a value investing jobs board. It is called VIN Jobs for short. You can check out the latest job listings by clicking on the Jobs link under the Explore menu.

I am pleased to announce the May Contest winners here at Value Investing News. Drum roll please...

The winners with the most user points earned in May are:

Value Auctions

I noticed that eBay auctions for value investing memorabilia have been popular on George's blog, Fat Pitch Financials. I thought the members and visitors to Value Investing News might also find these auctions to be of interest.

I've placed a live listing to eBay auctions regarding Buffett and value investing at the bottom of each page. Do you enjoy reviewing these current auctions?

April Contest Winner

Congratulations Nick!

He is the April 2007 Value Investing News member contest winner. Nick will receive a free membership to Value Investor Insight. As always, we try our best to reward you for your excellent contributions.

Even if you didn't win this month's contest, I encourage you to sign up for the free trial of Value Investor Insight. In fact, I just received my free trial copy of the April edition as a pdf file in my email box yesterday. The trial is completely no risk (meaning no credit card information is required), so give it a try and tell them Value Investing News sent you.

VIN Toolbar

We are very excited to announce the availability of the custom designed Value Investing News Toolbar. You can download it for either Microsoft Internet Explorer or Firefox. Click on the image of the toolbar below to install it now. When prompted, select Run or Open both times. It's that easy!

Latest Annual Reports Added

Under the Explore menu you can now browse the latest annual reports filed with the SEC. This feature is a bit experimental so please let me know if you find any issues with it.

I'm not quite sure how comprehensive this list will be, but it should catch most of the recent annual reports filed with the SEC.

  • Voting record available on each users page
  • Comments are now deleted if they receive too down votes
