I stopped by one forum haunt last night and saw things were different. Okay, so the board’s mistress has decided to redo, refresh, and redecorate her environment.

I’m just able to hang in here on the CL. As more and more boards to be different are using background colors to hide the print colors against to what seemingly is an effort to leave some doughtering old goats out of the mix…

Yeah. Its been suggested I play with a strip of screen at the top of the monitor to read what’s going on. I have tried that. I ain’t got that much time left in this life to completely read the last POST.

Then, I could down load everything I should think I might want to see to a document mode to where I can increase the print size and bold it up a bit to see/read them. All this takes time.

Just might be I’ll have to give this all up because a large screened monitor cost is out of the question costing much more than this computer. But, I can still enlarge my print for my own writing amusement, which may be the only enjoyment left seeable, readable, contrastable for my sight to see.

I thank you all for allowing me this RANT!!!!


PS. The Café is another place almost reaching impossible shadows to see into place. Just what is it everyone is so ashamed of that got to hide around dark minuscule corners.

Point taken, Fern..

I thought that the forum software I use would be resizable ( as it should be! ) - just found out it is not...

I'm going to do something about it. Don't know what yet, but I'll find something..

In the mean time, this might be something for you:
Maybe you know that I use Opera as an internet browser. One of the nice features of Opera is that you can zoom in, even on websites like our forum, which don't have the possibility to see the text bigger..
Maybe it's worth a try to ( have somebody ) download and install it.
Apart from this nice zoom feature you'd have the advantage to use a browser which is a lot safer then Internet Explorer..

I'll let you know when I have a solution to resize the Newbies Forum!

Hope this makes you feel better and sorry for my ignorance

I am still seeing the board as it has always been...Sorta cream with a hint of yellow and black text...I find it very easy on the eyes...

I refuse to use that silly 'expand' feature, so maybe that is where you are seeing something different?
