I don’t really intend to turn this into a tech-geek discussion, but I have found another tool that is pretty cool. It’s designed for those of us using LCD screens (that’s what is in your notebook computer). ClearType Tuner is the name. It’s part of Microsoft’s semi-official Power Toys.
I read about it in Woody’s Office Watch.
What does it do? I’m not using it and maybe that’s why I missed what you said it did!
