At 150% and lower zoom, I can see what everybody can see, but at 175% and above, the screen shows what is in my screenshot. So because I like the comfort of my reclining c...

Re: What have you got open this weekend?

Quinta da Romaneira Vintage Port 2011

I tried it with a rare steak last night, but that went against the grain with me. Generic Côtes du Rhône NV felt much more right.
