    Okay, I'll admit this is a major nitpick. I run my desktop resolution at 1280x1024, and because of hard carriage returns every 60 characters or so, Ron's reviews and other posts end up taking up only about 25% of the available text space on my monitor, and thus require excessive vertical scrolling to read.
    I love the content of Ron's reviews and posts, but I think he could really improve the presentation by laying off the Enter key. Maybe a 12-step intervention program is needed? [​IMG]
    Class, pencils up--please analyze and discuss. I don't know, maybe there's a logical explanation for this, or maybe what I need is a 12-step program for OCD. [​IMG]

    Ah, then you'd be infringing on OTW, Original Text Wrap, which is Ron's right as an artist and writer [​IMG]
    Maybe at some time there will be some software for anamorphic text wrap to improve the use of screen real estate [​IMG]

    I've gotten used to it, along with the "Jeff Craig, 60 Seconds Preview"-type hyperbole. [​IMG]

    Maybe an anamorphic squeeze will work.

    I had thread a while back about this same thing. But it was pre-server change, and seems to have vanished to the place where old posts and mis-matched socks go.
    To summarize:
