......leave things alone!
That aptly described my day yesterday. I have been tinkering on and off with the blog for a bit and trying to bring it into the wide-screen era of monitors.
Except I forgot one thing.....I have an astigmatism that would knock an elephant for a loop!
When I got this monitor, which has a recommended 1600 x 900 resolution, it darned near threw me into migraine-hell. Too much, too wide, some text I could enlarge, some I couldn't. Most is sans serif by default and I cannot see that---AT ALL.
So after finally figuring out how to do a blog background and posting it, I had to change the screen resolution, and by the time the evening was over, I was dizzy and almost cross-eyed. And the stomach was flip-flopping more than Flipper ever did on the televison show, for those of us old enough to remember that one! LOL!
Today, no more tinkering. (at least for a goodly while) It is what it is. It has a disclaimer at the top about the size it should be viewed in to look *right* and I'm sorry if there are black bands on the sides.......I want to see my stuff on the screen, and this is the only way I can.
Then I got thinking the horrid thought about when we have to purchase a new TV and they are all these flat screen monsters......OMG!!!! Perhaps that will be the day I give it up for good.
In the meantime, I am back to the studio getting it cleaned and ready for the next phase of fiber work. That was what should have been finished yesterday evening in someone here wasn't so anal and OCD about doing things.
Now, off to the multitude of tasks at hand, finding my glasses being the FIRST!
Hope you all have a good one!
