Sharpen a photo?

I have an image that I've been playing around with for a while to try to get a specific part of the image legible. I really wish to see the text for one specific area but I'm afraid it seems impossible, so I was wondering if you can give it a try?

I have attached the image. If you can manage to read it then you have succeeded. If you also want I can give you the entire image (much larger) but I'm not sure if that would be of help.

The full image is @ http://bit.ly/aUQ19T (if you need it, I recommend using the attached one)

I don't think it's possible but I don't mind if someone can figure it out!

Thank you.

The title in the light-green area appears to say "Runescape Release Schedule". The other text is too small to make out.

That's the problem. >.< Is there any way to make it more focused when I zoom into the picture?

I'm pretty sure you're out of luck on this one, there's just no pixel data to recover on the smaller letters; if there wasn't any JPEG compression, there might have been a shot.

Sorry, can't enhance by zooming.
Reminds me of this Youtube video.

Take a look.

Sorry, but we've seen enough images like this over the years to know very quickly it will not be possible.
