comment How to practise typing in dark?
$117 for a keyboard without letters? I have a better solution. Take a roll of electric tape and cover the letters. 99 cents.

Seemed to me he was looking for a way to change the colors to something slightly easier to read. You can do that with the color choices OSX gives you.

I edited the answer to include a link to instructions for doing the same thing from the command line. The next time you ssh in, you can edit the .bashrc file following those instructions and problem solved.

comment Can you set different text colors for different “list levels” in Word 2007?
I'm on a linux laptop at the moment so I can't test it, but when I wrote the answer I was on a PC running Windows XP and Office 07. I saw three menus, one for bullet color, one for underline color, and one for font color. All worked as intended. (IIRC the font color was the left-most one.)
