This process almost suffered from infant death the other day when I realized that I'd reinstalled my laptop ... and had no idea what font I was using on burly-mango. Not a clue as to the name. So, I went through all three of my font CDs. (Yes, I have that many fonts.) No luck. I must have burned the CDs after I downloaded the font. Well, hell. I was in despair. Gloom and doom and stress. (Yes, we're going to ignore the fact that I'm a complete moron and didn't make backups of the fonts or even just write the name down somewhere.)
So, with much weariness, I grab a canteen and a compass, and I head off to the web, searching for my beloved font. I first strayed over into the wilds of usenet and posted a "HELP!" message in comp.fonts, of course. But then, I dove headfirst into the web. I seemed to vaguely recall that my font had the word "diner" in the name. Armed with this information, I googled, and lo. It was on the very first site I hit.
I used many font karma points, ladies and gentlemen.
The font is now stored in about 8 different places on 7 different machines. Want to archive it for me, too? =)
But yes. Work proceeds apace on burly-mango, and Kimo should even be making an appearance soon. (Yay, Jer! Yay, Sherri!) In fact, I think I'll go work on stuffs some more even now.
