  • Larger Font Styles

    Just a quick heads-up that I've implemented larger font variants of our forum's light and dark page styles. You can select the style of your choice by scrolling to the footer of any page here. This might be more comfortable (it is for me) for those with high-resolution displays where the standard fonts, while permitting a lot of text to fit on the screen, might be uncomfortably small.

Just watched the movie Mank on Netflix. It is the story of the alcoholic script writer that wrote Citizen Cane. He also had the idea (and never got credit) for the change from B&W to color for the Oz movie. It is in B&W, witty and all about character. My wife says it was too talky for her (I was surprised), but I found it engaging. Lots of info on how movies were written back in the 1930's.
