Default Please Wrox, never do this again...

I just purchased and downloaded the Power Programming with ReSharper Wrox Blox by Andrew Moore.

I don't know if it's any good, and I probably won't get a chance to find out, because the screen shots are in black and are all but practically unreadable.

I know it's only $6.99, but seriously, how disappointing and how frustrating. If refunds were available, you bet I'd be asking for one.

I guess some people think their black-background Visual Stidio text editor is cool. Guess what? For people who have to read your tiny, blurry screenshots, it's NOT cool. Not one bit.

Might want to keep this in mind in the future.

Excellent feedback Lee. Let me get with Andrew and see if he can get us more suitable screen shots and we'll produce a new PDF for everyone on this.

Luckily, it's a PDF and not several thousand copies of printed books. ;)

Thanks, that would be awesome. Please let me know so I can download it again.

Not to push it, but maybe he could make them a tad larger too?
