30th Fontiversary

It was in the summer of 1982 that I, with the crucial guidance of my older brother, made my first "typeface": an 8×8 Armenian bitmap font on our newly acquired darling, the Commodore-64. Although the C64 was in fact our third computer (we'd previously had a couple of PETs) it was the first to open up this new world for me.

I vividly remember penciling in the squares on grid paper, turning those into byte values, and entering all the numbers into the BASIC language's "DATA" fields. Sometimes it feels like it was yesterday.

And here I am sounding like an old fart.

The C-64 is still even today used by many HAM radio operators....
