Debugging Rules poster thumbnailHere’s a thumbnail of it, so you can see what you’re getting for your hard-earned mon… oh wait, it’s free, forget that. Here’s a thumbnail:
The poster is formatted at 11″ x 17″, which is a really nice size for a poster but not too typical for home color printers. So when you print it, just tell your JPG viewer to “shrink to fit” and center the poster. It will shrink the poster by 30% and leave wide margins on the left and right, but the rules are still easily readable, even with bloodshot eyes through streams of tears.


For the perfectionists, the following is the super high quality version. The file size is 8 Mbytes, which takes a long time to download and probably bogs down the web server. Use it only if you have a fast connection and want to print it on 11″ x 17″ paper, or if you’re really picky about quality.
