Typographica's Favorite Fonts of 2005

Typographica has part one of their favorite fonts of 2005 posted. I'm rather partial to Cezanne Pro.


For obscure reasons, I went off in search of the name of the "Led Zeppelin" typefaces along with the cool drop quote typeface used for drop quotes in the MOJO Led Zeppelin special issue.

Happily the search turned up the rather nice Kashmir font created by Brian Davies as well as this Zeppelin2 font.

A blast from the past. Don Box on why ATL makes COM a joy. (Hat tip to Chris Sells for the reminder.)

I especially liked this pointer to WWI aerial stuff.

Winter Riding

Well, it looks like winter is well and truly here. The cold weather's settled in, which is at least making Prophet more comfortable in his thick winter velour.

Even better, the snow has started early which makes for some nice trail riding as long as it doesn't turn to ice.

Heading Home

No bugs on the trail, either!

Text Based Scheduler

Here's a neat text based meeting scheduler over at 43folders.

Definitely worth a check for the Outlook averse, like myself. Ok, it's not that I hate the outlook scheduler, but if you need to ad-hoc schedule meetings with folks across platforms (and worse) organizational domains, it's a bit of a lose.
