    Background info

    Wireless has, for the most part, been the bane of my existence as a Network Manager. It's flaky, it's unreliable and it can ruin your otherwise lovely day.

    A really short and simple one this, but it was one that was news to me when someone pointed it out - using Ctrl + [ ] to resize text up and down a point at a time. ICT Tip 066 - Quickly Resize Text.doc
