I have fiddled with fonts and decided that what I really need is big characters. While I like the idea of high information density, it is much more important to read without effort. I typically use 14 point adobe-courier on a 20" 1280x1024 screen.

I like to adjust the fonts in different applications, This sometimes causes problems since not all applications handle this well. It makes GUI developers nervous when they see you messing with their application's fonts and colors, because these features are often not well tested and you are likely to find problems.

I use gvim to edit code. When the monitor intensity is turned down I use the gvim default color scheme. When the intensity is cranked up I use the color scheme 'morning', which reduces the intensity of the background.

The X setting for the font is:

-adobe-courier-medium-r-normal-*-*-140-*-*-m-*-iso8859-2
It should work perfectly the first time! - toma
