11 matches«It is really, REALLY sad, that in 2 weeks the histories of 2 huge font-forum-archives are gone. Please don't tell me that it's true.» wrote the swallow.
Looks like open source was too vulnerable to hacking attempts. Or maybe Alex just wanted to develop his own software. Only Alex knows. For sure one day he will tell us. Anyway the way he described the open source forum software could in no way be considered a compliment. It couldn't even be considered sarcastic or even ironic. And, what Rodolphe is doing? Who knows? Just a short line of explanation would have been nice. Both here and there.
From an email discussion with Alex about the history of this forum these quotes:
«... old forum is gone forever, at least for now, ...» and
«... you are correct. i will make an effort of recovering the knowledge burried with the old, insecure, 3rd party, ** $#$%^*(^@!#$) ** (not to be revealed to the world) of a forum.»
Also see the thread with my discussion with Alex:
--- The history has gone. Many things that already have been answered now can not be referred to anymore. Can you keep the old forum up as read-only?»
In short I can/must accept that Alex doesn't want to keep an insecure - vulnerable forum up. Too many attacks. But keeping it up as read-only should be possible. Not the nicest of all solutions, true, but at least a solution.
Or am I the only one who believes that a people without a history maybe a bunch of people but are not a people.
Anyone out there supports me?
... nice to see you here heron ...
(Alex, enjoy your holiday today out there in that cabin in the middle of nowhere).
1 matchesIt's a very strange thing:
the "m" in I'm is different than so"m"ething, but similar as "m"ore
collector: the "l" are different, so are the a"lways, tru"l"y and "l"ove but some are similar.
same thing with the "e" coll"e"ctor, l"e"t, b"e"caus"e", smo"e"thing, mor"e".
"s" in alway"s" and thing"s" are different than "s"omething.
so are the "n"... the "o"...
2 of a kind each time.
must be some alternate font
2 matchesWell, KKat, you are right as always. But I didn't see the apostrophe as so obligatory for this typeface. As I saw it the first thing which came to mind is "oh, the apostrophe isn't original." Too round for this spikey thing. But maybe I'm wrong. I have seen so many altered apostrophes in movie/music titles, some of them came from commas. But you are right, none are a match, for me the C is the hard thing. :wink:
The K is the most important thing. I'm supposed to duplicate one of those mini cereal boxes for Special K and I can't draw the K. I was looking for a font that was similar so I didn't have to draw the entire thing. The rest of the letters aren't that important. [/quote:3028962ec4]
If all you need is that "K" I'll make you the K if you want.
1 matchesThat was not so easy - anyway for me,. The only thing I can come up with is the Hellraiser 3 and the Hellbound. Yep, indeed HORRIBLE. The only thing is, the J doesn't match. So there must be something else around. But what??
Both not here on abstractfonts [Alex, why not?] but the search helps again.
1 matchesFunny thing this ralph-nick-reispalm thing. Gets the same answers everywhere and still can't accept it. Probably never heard of lead.
1 matchesThe H has the same weird swash as other letters but does not fit. Fancy thing made by the logo 'designer'. The rest is the lower case of Gothic Leaf with the ornaments taken off and some alterations on i and t. It spells zfnii plus that fancy thing that stands for the h.
1 matchesI have no clue what the other thing might be. It has many things in common with many classic serifs. But so transformed.
I went for the open p but nada de nada. But I learned one thing, never knew that there are so many clones of Souvenir and Fritz Quadrata around. MANY that is. I'd better put another lock on the dungeon.
4 matchesYou want me to correct this and send you the zip?
Other thing, ask Alex to withdraw this one from Abstractfonts and Rodolphe the same at Dafont (if submitted, I don't see it yet) and go commercial with this one. It is about time.
4 matchesWas that message the only thing on the page? Or did it appear in a yellow box at the bottom of the page?
I'm glad that you like the changes.
Are you able to upvote fonts?
