Fonts, fonts, fonts!
=^.^= Lookie, lookie, I've made a font index/catalog thingie!

I never knew iView Media Pro handled these things. I've always only used it to sort pictures and images and stuff. So cool. I promise I'll actually buy the full version when I have money. It's worth it, whatever its current shareware pricing is.

I need more cool fonts. Got suggestions/links/donations?

And I'm wondering if there's any type of font that MacOS X doesn't handle. It seems to work with ttf (truetype fonts, I think?) for windows just fine (as you can see).

Wonder if there's a limit to the number of fonts I can load at once...?

And I'm impressed with the Font Book included in 10.3. It's pretty, not too hard to use, and, like all other library/sorting type applications that apple makes, somewhat stubborn. You don't _have_ to copy the font onto the root font directory, you know. Check and see if the fonts are already under the root font directory and if they're just under a subdirectory, and if they are, don't move them out of the folder. I have my own organization preferences. Eh well, it's not like I'll be using it to organize and sort my fonts, although I may eventually need to do that. ::shrugs:: we shall see.

The majority of the fonts that are prettyish are from this site:
http://members.aol.com/fontner/
and the top ten from:
http://www.flashkit.com/fonts/ (link from Karthik)

I need to figure out a way to set up DeepVacuum to grab all the fonts from the latter site. It looks like the fonts are all hosted on the same server, which means I could just limit recursive grabbing to that server only. Hmmm.......

Right now, I'm loading 431 different fonts (according to FontBook), and the only problem I have is that occasionally it'll crap out while I'm trying to disable the crappy fonts that I don't know why I have anyway X);; But I think that's just because I'm trying to do fifteen things at once and apparently it can't deal with it, even with 1.2GB of memory X);; So far, no real problems.

I get a lot of fonts from Flat Earth, Blambot and Fontalicious, because they do a lot of really nice comic-fonts and layout-fonts, which is essentially why I'll use a font other than verdana X);;
