"Jason Powell

came up

with a photo series

where he takes old photographs

of public places,

prints them out

and then overlaps them

over the same image,

in the present day."

TechnoDolt™ breakthrough: Address Book font size change

Dfg3

Since forever I've been squinting at that teeny type (above) in my Address Book.

Until yesterday, when I decided to clean out all the zillions of names I no longer recognized.

I started in on the nearly 2,000 people listed but after a few screens I thought, come on, there's got to be a way to make those names bigger.

So I  clicked on Preferences under Address Book and lo and behold, a window opens up with Font Size options.

I looked and Regular was the one I've been using since I got my PowerBook back in 2005.

Huh.

I clicked on Extra Large and all of a sudden things improved a lot (see below).

Ll]plp[

I got so excited I spent the rest of the evening working my way all the way down and through the Address Book, such that I now have 1,050 names.

Cut that thing nearly in half.

w00t!
