Do you want *more* columns or less?

I have the reverse problem.  I have a little 50" panel, can can't seem
to get the fonts small enough, or enough detail on the screen, even from

10ft.  It actually looks pretty awkward.

We need a theme designed for large displays which doesn't assume all
are unreadably small or blurred.

Note also that HDMI on a plasma or LCD produces bright crisp fonts,
TV-out on a standard def TV produces blurred fonts with bleeding colors.
