Tip of the day...


Change text size quickly (with Ctrl-mouse wheel)

If you have a wheel mouse, hold down the "Ctrl" key (on the keyboard) while you roll the wheel - it makes the text larger or smaller instantly!

Bonus: this tip works in many other applications too. (It's generally used for zooming in Windows.)

I became one of the Wikipedia's official janitors (admins) in November 2004. If there's anything I can do to help, just drop a message on my talk page

Wiki-specifics[edit]

I've been a registered Wikipedian since May 2004, after reading about the project in a friend's LiveJournal. It didn't take long for an obsession to develop. I enjoy fixing grammar, punctuation, and spelling errors, which is what first got me hooked. Since then, I've moved back and forth among a lot of different areas: wikifying, hitting the random page button and fixing what I can, sorting stubs into categories, cleaning unsuitable articles from the new pages, and Recent Changes patrol. Now and then, I create a new article: 80 so far. The most unpleasant to research was Creeping eruption.

Interesting quotes[edit]

  • The problem with Wikipedia is that it only works in practice. In theory, it's a total disaster. - Gareth Owen
