Keyhole surgery on software

Have been working from home - I think two people (one amongst us here) made it into the office. Visual Studio is not really that usable any more on a 1024 by 768 screen in my experience, it is a bit like trying to perform keyhole surgery on the software, particularly as I was doing the sort of change that involved adding extra parameters to lots of things. Then again, maybe if the methods were shorter, but there would presumably just be more of them. Cue the nostalgia for using Brief on a 80 by 25 screen (with the edges take up with the 'edges of things' characters that used to be in the OEM character set).
