April 1, 2010 - Redmond, WA - Construction workers stopped the excavation for building 1,629 at Microsoft's Redmond campus when crews uncovered a 44MB Syquest-brand storage cartridge packed with astonishing archival data.

Verdana and Georgia, two of the most widely used fonts found on nearly every computer in the world, appear to have had a sort of digital tryst during their years in storage and together produced a font called [[http://www.ascenderfonts.com/font/verdorgia.aspx|Verdorgia]] (see graphic).

The new Verdorgia font data seems to have been born through an unusual process called 'binary conception' and contains recognizable attributes from each of its well-known parents.
