    I have an aesthetic coronary when I use a machine without this setting.

    i guess you’re cooler than me then dan

  4. Bart says:

    Use Verdana or Georgia as your ssytem fonts, they were designed to scale ‘properly’ and are very easy on the eye even with ClearType off.

    nah. I’m just fussy/picky/pedantic/stupid.
