    Upstairs inside my head I class fonts in categories. In the Serif category I remember this face because of its pointy serif, and I remember its name mainly because the Ss look like a Boa Constrictor that...

    I have a weird mental block when it comes to this typeface. Whenever I see it, I can never remember its name. Maybe it's because there's absolutely nothing about the face that seems even remotely ser...

    Typos are very important to all written form. It gives the reader something to look for so they aren't distracted by the total lack of content in your writing.

      I picked the Character "Friday" created by Robert A Heinlein and it nailed it.

        It got me on Harold LLoyd, Fats Waller and Blackadder, but I stumped it with Taran and James Thurber.

              I thought it wasn't even getting warm with Alfred E. Neuman, but it surprised me. It even got Aubrey Beardsley, although it took all three guesses. Eerie.

              It didn't get Eddie Lang (although he's in the database), and it was totally lost on Kipling's Kim.

                              pretty slick deal. Just a database with a series of filters applied, with a cheesy interface tacked on.

                              Reminds me of the "Handwriting Analysis" booth at the county fair when I was a teenager. This was in the days of IBM punch cards. At a dollar a time, it was one of the most expensive deals on the midway. You just signed your name, maybe copied a simple sentence (? it's been a year or two...) then the guy would put your card into this huge machine. You could see the punch cards going up and down and back and forth on this machine, then out popped your "analysis". We all knew the "analysis" was just a random message when it was done, but we all found something in the "analysis" that was absolutely right about us. And then we'd do it the next day to see if we got the same answer...
