Well, for most pages on my site, this way is much cheaper in terms of screen space, because on most pages, it's not just big solid blocks of text, like the journal. A page like that, you get a lot more scrolling as a result of a side bar. But on most pages, there's only a fixed amount of stuff, like the forum front page, or the ordering page, and each line is only a short fixed amount of junk on it, so having the sidebar doesn't actually lengthen a page like that at all. I know this is an overall savings, and the key thing is getting more significant page content right in the face of the visitor right off the bat. Also, I have fixed the menu now though, so it won't be bouncing your page all around anymore! If you're seeing the same old one, hit refresh and be astounded and amazed with the new and improved site!
