On a similar but non-AOL note, make sure that you have your computer set up to see true colors. I can't tell you the number of times I've received emails from people complimenting me about attire and they tell me the color is red or blue when I wasn't wearing that color. Why do they see things so differently? If you right click on your desktop (this is for PCs...I don't know how one would change it in a Mac), and then go to "Properties", and then select the "Settings" tab, you will see the options for your PC & monitor viewing options. The options will be different depending upon the video memory, the monitor, etc, but you should set up your computer to *at least* see "True Color" or "High Color" and the monitor screen area to be at least 800x600 . Obviously the latter will depend upon how BIG you want to see things. Some people have difficulty seeing and need the lower setting. If you were previously viewing the web through 256 colors, you'll be AMAZED at how gorgeous everything looks when set to "True Color". You'll probably wonder how you could have lived with the previous setting all this time. :-) If ya need some assistance with this or the AOL fix below, drop me a line. I'd be happy to help.
