[texhax] How can I get Computer Modern font greater than 40

I have recently played with fonts. For certain occasion (kind of poster) 
I wanted to use bigger fonts than the usual ones. I have learned that, 
for example Adobe Times fonts of various sizes can be typeset as follows
ptm 10

ptm 20

ptm 30

ptm 40

ptm 50

ptm 60

ptm 70

ptm 80

ptm 90

ptm 100
I am having difficulties with obtaining analogous result with the 
computer modern fonts. When I substitute `cm' instead of `ptm', 
everything works up to the 40 point height. From this size up, all the 
characters are not getting bigger.

I am no seasoned LaTeX style designer but I am quite interested in this 
area. Could anyone help me? I like the classical Computer Modern 
typeface so if possible, I would like to continue to use it.
