    It was more than just putting up with a less knowledgeable person. She wanted to control everything and do it all her way. Much of what she said is so over the top wrong that it just baffles me and tried...

    Cool idea! I'm actually working on a blog myself. Just some advice that was given to me by someone who studies journalism is to have a years worth of content ready. So if it's a weekly blog, have no less...

    I bought a Canoscan based on PrintDriver's recommendation, and I'd buy another one in a heartbeat. It's a workhorse.

    There aren't that many scanners to choose from any more. I use a Canoscan 8800 and I'd buy another Canoscan in a minute. Good machine.

    I would never hand over the work to an untrustworthy client without getting payment. You let this happen.

                lol... This is the first I've heard of it too, but I suppose you could genderfy your fonts the same way many languages add gender to different nouns. For instance, a train is male, a bicycle is female, etc.

                I'm still picturing Mr. PD trying to print a stubborn font and crying, "You bastard font!!!"

                  I've heard of orphan fonts. But they're orphans, no one cares about them, no one cares if they're male or female.

                    I'm thinking the same way Ckret is, not "male" or "female," but "masculine" and "feminine."

                    Futura Bold is masculine, Shelley Andante is feminine. But it's really really subjective.

                        in the os9 days when you couldn't match a bitmap font with the outline font or visa versa they were called orphan fonts.

                          Ooh, oh... I get what you mean. Post-script outlines. Those really bug me when that happens.
