maybe no one else is replying---i usually get annoyed with overflow
lines---editor behaves strangely unless terminal set up right---so i like
an 80 character line limit--although I'm probably guilty as well of
violating it

also let me just register my general annoyance with these generation Y
small font guys---just a form of age discrimination if you ask me--grrr
