Grins widely!

I'm glad we bought the tickets already - they'll start disappearing real fast now. That comedy line-up is brilliant.

I just got the festival republic newsletter email, it looks really good, especially the comedy tent.

Oh, so true. All we need to do is find somewhere to plonk the boys when the fruitier-language comedians are on stage. Or maybe earplugs...

When you have it crammed-down to avatar-size it doesn't look so good (few things do) The "s" becomes a black blob and the "9"'s look like "0"s. See rough example of a more-readable image, but the font is still bad for the "s"

If you can make a better instructable than the rest, do it!

No it's slightly smaller, I just resized to 20% or something like - it was rough work. The point was that even when going diagonally, the text (at 9 characters) gets compressed so much it doesn't read well.
II.13 would work fine I'm sure.
