When Computer Geeks Try To Hand-Write Things

I read about a website called YourFonts, which will let you make a free TrueType font out of your own handwriting. I thought, that sounds kind of fun, and maybe I can make something that will actually make my handwriting legible. Here are the results: Yep, that worked out well.

Things, Divided 1

Still just buried in work as we try to get our footing, but a few quick: THINGS I LIKE – This American Life’s podcast this week, aptly titled “Another Frightening Show About The Economy.” You can download it for free from that page for the rest of the week, and it’s a much, much clearer ...

Amusements

Two quick things since I’m neck deep in trying to get everyone up and running for shooting to start the day after tomorrow: 1. Someone needs to tell these damn kids that National Coming Out Day is October 11th, not September 23rd. 2. And now for a wee game of What’s Wrong With This Screenshot, ...
