in the Shadow of Greatness

mmm. Strange topics, true confessions amazing how we get used to things.
For several years now, I've been working on screens that are 1024 or larger. haven't done 800x600 in a long time. usually 1280 is my fav. this all stems from working on CAD systems since 1986 or so. so today I'm teaching a class, I have to "reel in" my screen to 1024 or 800 in order to be compatible with the projector that allows twenty people to see what I'm doing on the computer. Wow. the fonts at the smaller sizes really look like crap. probably the dot pitch on the LCD screen I have. but the projector uses a LCD system too, so the lessons are going to look bad also. I really don't like the fact that I put time into this and it looks terrible. I spent time last night looking for smoother fonts at these smaller sizes, but it just doesn't seem to help. Bleh!!!
