Really, look at the time. Honestly I almost didn’t bother with WOYWW today because I am a little depressed. You see, I had a problem last week with my font collections. I had gotten thru to something like R and sorted them all into meaningful (to me) collections. So if I was looking for a picture (dingbat) that had vegetables, I could easily find it. Wanted a font with a really unique, mechanical look? Easy. Some fonts to audition that were flowing and scripty? Yep. Had a bunch o’ them. Well, somehow, when I closed down Fontbook it managed to lose all of my collections. They simply were not there when I reopened it. ARGH.
So today, what is on my workdesk is actually on my desktop – my fonts, to be sorted once again. I imagine it will take me a few days at least. But the silver lining is that I learned some things from using my last sorted lists that I can put in to practice this time! The left screen is the beginning of my re-sort and the right is my playing with Louise’s problem, posted earlier in the week on UKS, of fancy ordinal numbers.
And what’s the deal with the WOYWW number? I thought last week was 116? have I entered the Twilight Zone?
Oops. There’s the decorator again…..
