BigShot Screen Magnifier

A co-worker of mine gave me a trial version of BigShot to use. It's pretty good, though ZoomText gives you more obvious full control over your screen display. This program turns my mouse pointer arrow black, even though I prefer it white, and I can't see any obvious way to restore it to normal. As far as my Windows Control Panel is concerned, my mouse pointer is still set to 'normal,' so I'm not sure why this happened. BigShot just appears to do weird things with the pointer/cursor, regardless.

Still, I think the program is worth keeping simply because it magnifies some things that the Windows Accessibility settings don't necessarily magnify, nor do the browser text size settings. I have this for a 30-day trial period, so I'll see how it goes. Already, though, it is easier to read the screen on this computer.

If Paul Graves were a Classic Leading Man

Quizzage: Nabbed from marvo:

Your Score: Clark Gable

You scored 28% Tough, 4% Roguish, 23% Friendly, and 42% Charming!

You're a helluva guy, a real split personality and a bit of an enigma. On the one hand, you're a man's man, tough talking and ready for anything. But on the other hand, you soften your rough and tumble core with a disarmingly smooth exterior, and you make the ladies swoon. You're equally admired by both men and women alike, drinking other men under the table all the while charming the socks off half a dozen lovelies. You're a commanding presence, and you know how to get what - and who - you want when you want it. You're drawn to women who, like you, are savvy enough to deal with the world on their own terms. You work well with spitfires. Leading ladies include Joan Crawford, Myrna Loy, and Jean Harlow. No damsels in distress for you.
