I’m back…sort of.

Oh, and wow, I really haven’t blogged in a while, have I? Well, anyway, yeah, I’m back.

So where’ve I been? Nowhere, actually; I’ve been right here at home staring at a computer terminal as always. I just haven’t been blogging. I’ve been too busy doing other things– working on some business web sites, preparing my belongings for college (which starts next week), and fiddling with my nifty new ATI All-In-Wonder Radeon 7500 card in the past week (crashing Win98 a couple times in the process thanks to some driver conflicts, heh…).

Microsoft’s core fonts…gone?

Sigh. It seems that Microsoft has taken down the official download page for their core fonts package citing repeated end-user license violations as the reason for its removal. [link via MetaFilter and Typographica]

Now what am I going to do to install Trebuchet and Andale on all the old Win98 and MacOS 7 machines I come across? Wait…there are already plenty of unofficial mirrors of the fonts that– ironically enough– are fully in compliance with the above-mentioned license agreement. Go figure.

(Then again, on the bright side, there’s no more link to Comic Sans on Microsoft’s page. Talk about a font that gets severely misused…)
