I had a revelation today: while I sometimes work with a big screen, I normally leave NetBeans at the default size for my laptop screen. I try hard to keep methods small, so it’d never occurred to me to hit the little green “maximize” button. Today, one of my (JXTA-wrangling) methods kept growing and growing, and without thinking I threw 2.3 million pixels at the problem. Holy cow... I’ve been coding with one arm tied behind my back. Developers everywhere: get more pixels. You need them, whether you know it or not.
