ronr: Sorry folks but we have to move again.  Finances is the major reason and but the new hosting service is kicking back tons of errors and things just aren't work well!  I cleaned out the shoutbox just so that the changes messages will stand out better!

Feel overwhelmed by a big wall of text?

I've found that since developing fibro, reading big blocks of text difficult and sometimes overwhelming. I stumbled on this addon thingy called Squirt https://www.squirt.io/install.html

It's supposed to be for speed reading, by only showing you one word at a time, you can supposedly read much faster. I found that when I dialled back the speed somewhat, and tried to read the FDA release that ronr just posted, it seemed easier and a whole lot less daunting.

I will have to try that out. Thanks for posting.

Lots of us seem to have the problem with big blocks of text. That is why we recommend members us the return key often to make white space in their posts to help this of us who cannot handle large paragraphs. S I have had to go into a new member's post and add white space to it to make a post as member friendly as possible.

I use text to speach to help me when having difficulty reading. I read along, but the 'puter saying it out loud helps the reading comprehension greatly.

I always say use whatever you can to make life a little easier.  With that in mind, I've decided to clip the can opener to the cat's collar.  :biggrin:
