Fonts.

On Saturday, Newt (wonderful person that she is) helped me install Linux on Ash. I'll have more to say about that later but one particular issue is on my mind at the moment....

I was horrified to discover that the fonts on Almost Fabulous looked like hell in Linux. Practically illegible. Thanks to some very helpful advice, I think (hope) that this blog and the movie reviews look somewhat better now. Readable anyway. I'll fix the rest of the site tomorrow when I boot back into Windows.

While I was changing the stylesheets, I was thinking that I wouldn't be able to see if the reviews and the blog still looked ok in Windows until tomorrow. I'd just have to hope that I hadn't messed anything up. Then I remembered the machine that sits behind me. The one I call Bishop. The one that still runs Windows and has, you know, an internet connection..... Brain dead. That's me! Go ahead and laugh, Newt. ;)

Added to my list of things to do: installing Micro$oft's core fonts so other sites will look better.

And then you said

Thanks! Duke has never displayed so well. Maybe I don't need a new monitor?
