Dear conference speakers:

Please test write your slides at 1024x768 resolution, on a projector.

Dear conference organizers:

Please remind your speakers to do so.

Dear conference attendants:

If you are at the back of the room and you can't see the text/code in the slides the speaker(s) is showing, please shout “I cant see shit!” in the appropriate language, and try to embarrass the speaker as much as possible.

Thanks in advance. Yours truly,

-- Marcos.

PS: I've been watching videos of talks in some conferences and I swear to $DEITY at in least 40% of the ones I was interested in, I couldn't read the code on the video. Sometimes the fonts are too small, sometimes the colors are not contrasting enough. Please, at least test your slides on a projector...

PSS: I know the resolution I'm suggesting is low. Be happy I'm not asking for 640x480 :-P

PSSS: Ok, attendants, don't embarrass/harass the speakers :)
