    Great random tip! This is a setting I wouldn’t have even thought existed but it’s nice to know I can customize this.

    And on another subject, I saw your face in the recent Channel9 medley video, I didn’t even know they visited you in the past, what was the subject about?

    should be:

    Tools-Options-Environment-Fonts and Colors

    Thanks for catching that typo! it’s been corrected.

    I was the first woman they ever interviewed on Channel 9, hence why i got interviewed – there was lots of talk on the blogosphere about Women in Computing, and a friend (Gretchen @ jobsblog) suggested they interview me.

    If you look to the right-hand side, you’ll see all the Channel 9 videos. The first 5 are the ones Scoble did with me.
