Does the font look big to anyone else or is it me.

I think the font is pretty small

There's a button ^ ^ ^ up there somewhere that allows you to change the size of the font.

Personally I think it's a good idea. You may not be aware of it, but your eyesight starts to deteriorate from around the age of 40, so having something in a larger font for those who are, presumably, older posters can only be a good thing.

It's the bane of my life working in market research, having to research packaging designed by 12 year olds who insist on designing pack copy in a tiny font and in the same colour, just a lighter shade, than the darker pack. Ensures that copy is impossible to read for older shoppers.

I'm not keen on the colours, but I like the font. Lovely and clear.
I've always had bad eyesight, so having it deteriorate with age is just adding insult to injury.

But why is there no Biscuit? (Or wine, or coffee?)

See, I just should have tried, shouldn't I?

Where is the button that makes the font bigger. I like the font style, very clear, but it will need to be bigger for my mum to read.

Ha! Finally found it. That's better. I can show her now. Oh - makes the stuff at the bottome of the page go craaaazy. Hmmm. Can't post without turning the text back to normal size.

Colours are a trendy retro '70s combo - not keen either. Too sombre and reminiscient of me mothers front room - the green that is.

Oops, too many i's - reminiscent

Try holding down Ctrl key and pressing + key to make font bigger as and when needed and Ctrl key and - key to amke it smaller. Works on most other web pages too ;-)

Oops sorry I meant "make"...
