If you’ve used a high-mega pixel digital cam, you’ve probably found it hard
to fit the resulting images on screen: Unlike printers, which vary dot sizes to
cram more visual data and detail into a given space, most monitors operate at a
fixed 96 dots per inch. So as the number of pixels in the original photo goes
up, the apparent on-screen size grows accordingly. You end up only seeing a
little chunk of the original image, or you have to use a tool that automatically
re-scales the photo to screen size.
Hi Fred. Your news letters have always helped me so much!
(first standard edition, now plus edition). I always visit your readers
sites and have a slew of them book marked. your most recent plus edition had
a link for http://officeboosters.com.
There, in the freebies section, was a little program called "Vippy". It
allows you to change the color and/or size of your cursor. Dubbed the
writer friendly cursor, I immediately thought of you! Don’t remember you
mentioning it in your letters. Hope you and your readers find it useful.
Respectfully yours, Joe

Hello Fred, Thanks for your great newsletter.
The info you provide has more than paid for the minimal cost of a Plus!
Remember Faisal, from Indonesia? He was the
seventh of the 13 kids sponsored on an ongoing basis
by LangaList Plus! subscribers.
Faisal Eko Budiayanto was born
to a desperately poor family in Central Java province. He lives with
his parents only in a very simple house, earthen floor without
private bathroom and electricity in it. His father only earns a
living by farm laborer with small income that in insufficient to
meet their family’s basic needs, and there is no way for the mother
to help with the finances. The Family’s annual income is US$ 154. It
is painfully obvious that the child needs help to get proper
nourishment clothing and better attention. We are happy to welcome
him to our big family. Faisal Eko Budiayanto is a cute little boy. His health is average and he makes progress day by day. Your kind
sponsorship will mean much for his happy growth.
I want to say again how much I enjoy your newsletter. If I have a chance at
keeping my head above the ever-deepening waters of computer complexity, it’s in
large part because of you!
Hello Fred, Thanks for all your articles,
