What happened at Type Con 2006?
Commented on Friday, 1 September 2006 - 7:16pm

I think it's built in to the program so you're stuck with it, Matt. (It is a pain, I know)

I am a graphic designer and type teacher living in Ottawa and have lived here for about 15 years now. It's a small town and most of our graphic design graduates do find work in and around Ottawa. With several schools churning out grads each year and...

The film snippet was definitely enough to wet my appetite! It looks very clever and well thought out - you'll have to give us a countdown to the theater release, Gary!

Probably not, Jesse. The research is for my college curriculum and I'm just trying to fatten up what I already have with diagrams and photos. The wiki on Max does look a bit slim though. Pehaps Gary will contribute to it!
