60 Free Handwritten & Script Fonts
People mostly use either serif or sans-serif fonts and often miss out the handwritten fonts. They are as important as the main font classifications. I particularly like to use handwritten fonts to highlight significant items in screen captures. They add the personal touch in my design and also provide great typographic contrast. akaDora Alako Ampersand Angelina Avant que Bee Marker Ink BethHand Bradley Hand ITC (update: not free) Brankovic Brook 23 CAC Pinafore Carefree Chalkdust Cheryl CoertSchrift Dik Complete in Him CoolHandLuke Creampuff Deathrattle Desyrel Dwerneck Eraser Fafers Handwriting FFF Tusj Freehand 575 Freestyle Script (update: not free) Graph Hand of Sean HarabaraHand Honey Script HZHandwrite It Ain't Rocket Science Japanese Brush J.D.

Φήμες ότι η Google ετοιμάζει τη δική της υπηρεσία κοινωνικής δικτύωσης, με το Google Me (από DownloadSquad) If you follow the rumor mill, you probably heard about Google Me a few days ago. Digg's founder Kevin Rose tweeted about it a couple of days ago. It's not that people didn't believe him, but it just seemed a bit random to come from someone like him. It's just a series of bullet points, which Adam D'Angelo says he's 'pieced together from reliable sources'. This is not a rumor. Does anyone else think that Google looks more and more like a lumbering giant that simply throws fistfuls of resources and money at its problems? (And what on earth happened to the Google-owned Orkut...?!)

Update για την δωρεάν έκδοση του Foxit Reader (v. 4), αλλά προσοχή στα adware κατά την εγκατάσταση (από DownloadSquad) I got a heads-up email today that Foxit Reader -- one of the most widely-used Adobe Reader alternatives -- had released a new version. Curious, I headed over to the site to download and install the new version. After all, Foxit's popularity means our readers might be interested in reading about a major version update. During the installer's first couple of screens, the Ask toolbar was offered -- not a bit deal, really. It's included in plenty of apps nowadays. After seeing the Ask toolbar offered, I chose to do a custom install -- just in case Foxit defaulted to including anything else I didn't want. As you can see, I don't have any boxes checked on this page...A few clicks later, however: update: as Matt points out below, it's all in the wording. ... and the installer tells me it's going to install the Foxit Search Bar. Whether this is a mistake or not makes no difference to me -- and if it is a mistake, it's one that should have been detected during the testing process.
