Subject Re: Line length

Yeah,  I bought a 26 inch monitor at Best Buy or Staples and use it as a second screen. It
cost me about $150.  Believe it or not, even with 120 characters I still have plenty of white
space off to the right.  But even on my MacBook Pro's 15 inch screen I still have no problem
with 120 characters.

I will admit that I am over 40 (well over) and use reading glasses to work on the computer,
so I have my screen size set to 1920 x 1200 on my laptop screen but 1920 x 1080 on my second

I used to limit the line length to 80 but stopped doing that several years ago as the laptop
and monitor screens started supporting higher resolutions.
