Thanks very much for using the Cosmo Web UI. It's really exciting to see
someone using it as their primary interface for accessing Cosmo.
We've actually had some discussion about how to increase the available
time range for the scrollable area in the UI. There are some different,
competing requirements -- including trying to make sure we don't shrink
the event blocks down so far that you can't see a title.
There are two angles of approach on this:
1. Increasing the time range in the scrolling area -- we'll have to make
some changes to the event lozenges for this to happen.
2. Making the height of an hour in the scrolling area configurable as a
user preference -- there's an open bug for this (bug 5124).
It's excellent to get some user feedback on this issue. I can't
guarantee how quickly we'll be able to address it, but at least we know
it's a bona fide inconvenience for someone trying to use the app.
Just a quick question -- what is your screen resolution? Obviously this
is more of a problem the less screen real estate you have.
