Posted 26 May 2012 - 4:03pm

Enclosed is a rather simplistic A/B test script cribbed from stuff on the web and held together with shell-o-tape. It is run on a hacked-on-a-lot asmutils 0.18 httpd, hence the crude CGI interface.

It, and all other scripts attached, are...

There's typo, and then there's typo... and then... there is this...

Rather kanji than boxes
Posted 20 Mar 2012 - 5:15pm

In my opinion, kanji (or hanzi or hangul) are way better than empty boxes on my screen. Any suggestions on which fonts to install? I'm not that discerning since I do not understand them anyway. Of course, advice for those that do is no doubt welcome...

FontForge UFO one-half
Posted 21 Apr 2011 - 6:04pm

... that if the Critique forum had signature lyrics, it'd likely be "Sans - Logos - Display" sung to Kraftwerk's "Trans Europe Express".

Universium - a nightmare?
Posted 4 Feb 2011 - 8:56am

Just before I woke up this morning, a MyFonts page flickered past my mind's eye. It showed a face named Universium. More info filtered in - it was a hybrid of Univers and Gentium.
