Chuckle, no, a foot maybe.  I was referring to the huge icon laden window it 
opened that still needed a scrollbar up the right side that was less than 
half the height of the window, total scroll length estimated at 2 feet.  
Sorry, but at 73, and with eyes fading from diabetis, I still run a 1680x1050 
screen on a Synchmaster 205 here.  I don't need glasses any stronger than 
what I wear to see it either, so if someone actually is poor enough off for 
eyes to need that amount of magnification, I darned sure don't want to meet 
them coming down the road at me in 2 tons or more of steel.
