At the risk that this is going to cause me all sorts of problems, here it today's post.

At work today, my mother IMed me.

Ma: Hi

Spudooli: Hi

Ma: Esther has a new PC with Xp on it and the text is too small

Spudooli: Oh

Ma: How do we make the text bigger?

Spudooli: You mean in IE?

Ma: I think she has Firefox

Ma: Perhaps one of your computer gooks can help me?

Spudooli: gooks?

Spudooli: You don't mean geeks do you?

Ma: yeah

Normally at night when I leave the office I say to the remaining staff, "goodnight computer geeks" as I walk past and out the door. But tonight it was too good an opportunity to miss. So after explaining the back story, it was "goodnight computer gooks!".

The Photo

While watching the Indy highlights I noticed a new indoor plant had appeared. The setting sun was hitting it nicely. The Indy cars had got very boring with them just going round and round so I went and grabbed the camera. By the time I had it, the sun was gone, of course. So rather than wasting the shot, I had a play with Hugh and Saturation.

  • that was mostly for the noobs that google "HOW DO I MAKE THE TEXT BIGGER" - and end up here. I care because you do

  • In Firefox, just hit [Ctrl] and [+] keys together, that will pump up the text - as many times as you need to get a good sized print. [Ctrl] and [-] will shrink it.
