Those drop-down top bar menu things... how do I make them go away?

See this New Yorker article. When I read it, the top New Yorker menu bar is hovering over the top of the page, so when I use the space bar to page down the bar blocks a part of the text. Is there some secret way to page down so that part of the text isn't hidden (I'm on a Macbook), or some way to make this type of menu bar go away? It's not just the New Yorker website--I see these many places.

Examples of websites that display pairs of items side-by-side?

I am designing a website for a set of museum exhibits. The curator designed the museum panels so two items are displayed on each panel and the viewer experiences them in each other's context. If we were making a book instead of a website, we would place these items on facing pages. What is the equivalent of facing pages in web layout? Can you think of websites that pair items so they are experienced together (i.e. without scrolling down)? [more inside]

What kind of e-reader do I want?

I want a cheap e-reader for reading longform articles in bed. It must work with Readability or InstaPaper or the like. It does not need to do anything else like games or surfing the intertubes. I have an iPhone for that. Do I want a Kindle?

Convert from Instapaper to Readability?

I love(d) Instapaper. I really did. But I like Readability even more. Unfortunately I have seventeen thousand articles saved in Instapaper. How can I export / import?

A kindle/instapaper/readability/calibre question for you, gentle (electronic) reader

I'm having no luck transferring the *complete* web page of 197 responses to this question posed by edge.org (previously on the blue, I think) to my little friend, a Kindle Keyboard (aka Kindle 3). I've tried using both Instapaper and Readability, but I think there's code in the webpage to disable a complete scraping. I'm also attempting to use calibre, and if anybody has a recipe that downloads a plain web page (probably using something called "web2disk") in calibre, I'm all ears.
