It's like a large print book.
2012-07-13 04:19:09 PM  
Did I accidentally hit the link for the hard of hearing?
2012-07-13 04:19:26 PM

Sure, make that joke first. See if I care.

That survey lacks the "Suck 'em" option. I refuse to vote.

What the hell are 74 people talking about? 1996? The site doesn't exactly look like reddit or drudge.

I voted not sure just for you.

I May Be Crazy But...: elffster: FARK - GIANT FONT FOR THE HARD OF HEARING

Sure, make that joke first. See if I care.

Ok, you go first. WHAT? I CANT HEAR YOU!!1


2012-07-13 04:22:38 PM  
Heh I swear the font was normal in every thread until I checked this one out. I think this thread is packing a format STD.

Fear the Change™
2012-07-13 04:22:59 PM  
Good, now my grandmother can use Fark too!
2012-07-13 04:23:07 PM  
Oh yay. Facebook and Twitter. So does that mean that the page will load even slower, what with all that extra JS?

Anyway, fark you fark, for becoming one of 'them'.

The upside is, I may just a get a life now.
2012-07-13 04:23:14 PM  
My god, font sizes are too big now. Time to whip up yet another stylish config for this new redesign.

Drew's eyes are probably going and he hasn't gotten new glasses (yet).

2012-07-13 04:23:35 PM  
Is the Foobies tab coming back?
2012-07-13 04:23:59 PM  
So this is the new look? Billboard font? Awesome!

outtatowner: //Yes, I could have X11 forwarded a browser from the box too or ran VNC, but it was dog-slow to respond.

Or done a dynamic proxy and just set up PortableChrome/Firefox to use a SOCKS proxy.

Or run a http proxy like squid on your home server and forward that port.
2012-07-13 04:27:04 PM  
the changes have already taken place? what changes? this is a joke right?
2012-07-13 04:27:19 PM  
I thought my browser chrashed. That would have been better than this.
2012-07-13 04:30:58 PM  
So by "refresh," Drew meant "make handicapped accessible"
2012-07-13 04:31:48 PM  
2012-07-13 04:31:55 PM

2012-07-13 04:32:26 PM  
Thanks for changing it, Dave!

I can't find my give-a-damn anywhere now!!

Fonts are too big, sometimes smaller is better (and I'm a half-blind old fart complaining that the fonts are too big).
2012-07-13 04:36:26 PM  
Noticed a font size change, this should be fun to watch soon.
2012-07-13 04:37:20 PM  
Great, more annoying facebook and twitter linky thingies.
Can't get enough of those!
Shoots self in head with a pinterest.
2012-07-13 04:37:22 PM  
.hlSpacer { display: none !important; }
#newsContainer { font-size: 100% !important; }

that's going a long way to restoring sanity...

changing the main index to doublespace with .hlspacer make it less than half the content per screen. that's insane.. O.O

/it'll take a while to get the fonts tuned like I had it, though :/
2012-07-13 04:38:06 PM  
I know the font is way bigger... but wasn't there a time in the past where the font used to be big (maybe not as big as it is now, but still big)?
I remember everybody complaining that the font got too small at one point...

/Off to adjust onion on his belt
2012-07-13 04:38:43 PM  
YAY now I can fark from across the room!
2012-07-13 04:40:00 PM
2012-07-13 04:40:40 PM  
Thanks Drew, now my 90 year old boss can read what's on the screen and I just got fired.

2012-07-13 04:41:12 PM  
2012-07-13 04:43:20 PM  
The funny thing is that the font size increase pushed half the ad sidebar outside my window.
2012-07-13 04:44:40 PM  
Hey, I don't see anything different. Do you guys?
2012-07-13 04:44:53 PM

Finally my Grandfather can browse without wearing his prescription bifocals
2012-07-13 04:52:42 PM  
I have a 640x480 resolution and each one of these letters takes up the entire screen. Thanks a lot.
2012-07-13 04:52:49 PM  

loonatic112358: StRalphTheLiar: Hey, I don't see anything different. Do you guys?

nope, but then I use opera

I use opera too and it displayed much bigger than normal. I just moved the zoom slider a bit to the left and all is well again.

(version 3.0RC2, now with less-WTFHUGE fonts)

/bored? annoyed? maybe just going insane from poking at firebug's CSS editor for too long?
2012-07-13 04:55:10 PM  
Had to clear my cache and reboot because it wasn't letting me log in or comment.
