I have been enamored with this site since I first asked a question on here, and I would love to be able to visit it often without locking a permanent squint on my face. Could we increase the default font size to something like, say;

This?

It is size 16. Thanks for taking a look!

I think that would be way too big, even for my 53-year-old eyes.

Which browser are you using? Safari, for example, has a Zoom In feature that will pump up the font size for you. Other browsers may have similar features.

Ah. I'm glad you said that. I'm running Google chrome, and, for some reason I am not sure of, the zoom was set to 80%. Much better now. *Embarrased*
