It's for a good cause too. We were expecting a softer launch but once Lance Armstrong mentioned us, we were off to the races.
Fortunately our little xen instance has held up and the exposure has sure made the search for sponsors a lot easier.
Now vote this story up or I'll have to #BlameDrewsCancer for it not making it to the front page!
I really love the visual design, which is why I said it's only an epic fail until the issue is addressed. Because this is the launch - you can't stop the viral spread of something like this.
In any case, you can't assume a minimum resolution when designing a website. At the very least, give lower resolution users the option of scrolling.
The bug you noticed is a little perplexing since I developed the site on a 13" MacBook. If you have a moment, I'd love to know more about the system where you saw this behavior: Browser, OS, Screen Res, Browser Window Size... (If you'd like you can email me at: email@example.com) Thanks for the feedback.

Ha! Ain't that the truth :)
Check my other post in this thread. Also, it's OS X 10.5.6. Maximized window.
The first message that comes in (randomly) obscures the text about raising funds. Is it a bug or, respectfully, a design flaw / feature? I would suggest you test this on a netbook.
I just deployed a bunch of updates that address the bugs you found -- yeah... I'll confess... they were bugs :)
Do you really think people will just figure that out by themselves? Maybe not an epic fail, but definitely a case of sacrificing getting the message across for the sake of visual charm. I had to reload the page 10 times to get the correct wording for my quote above.
