Out of the Blue

Okay, the server move is done, and I can't thank Frans enough for his yeoman effort at making everything happen, which involved quite a lot. The only issue I'm aware of is how the post counts are off next to stories, but I'm pretty sure that'll smooth out once the DNS switch fully propagates, as we're currently pulling data from both the old and new servers. Other than that, registration should work again, reminder emails are going out, and the forum wonkiness seems ironed out. Thanks for all your patience in the time it took to fix all that.

18. resolution question Sep 18, 2008, 00:49 strich
ok guys, i have a question for ya'll.

When you decrease the size of your screen resolution (i.e., from 1024x768 to 800x600), all of the application windows, fonts, etc increase in size. I always joked that lower screen resolutions were for older people with bad sight. But I've run into a problem. I've hooked up a computer to my HD TV and its native resolution is 1900x1200. While this looks amazing for video, I can't read a single thing on the screen (font & application size). I've increased the font via the display properties under the appearance tab, but a good portion of headers and generally, window size is still so small, that i have to walk up to the TV to read it. Does anyone know of a 3rd party application that will allow me to increase the size of windows and fonts but still keep the native resolution of the TV?

I don't believe in a lot of things, but I do believe in duct tape.
