10,000 fonts.
« on: May 23, 2018, 01:00:38 PM »
I needed some extra fonts as the default Win10 set are a bit limited so after trying out some of the free crap with their broken sets and money squarking, I thought, PHUK this and bought a download of 10,000 fonts, many of which look very useful. Now the humour here is, have you ever tried to evaluate 10,000 fonts ? Its a formula to go blind and mad.  :P

I needed the extra fonts for video and PNG files. Once you use them in image data, you don't need to have the font installed on the host machine so you can use them for text based logos and videos on Youtube.

Sounds good. What is also funny or a curiosity is the number: why 10000? Couldn't they offer 98376?  :bgrin:

Hi Steve,

   Oh boy, time to get my eyes checked.  I first saw 10,000 farts.

   On topic, the 35 standard PostScript "fonts" seem to handle most
of what I need to do.  Mostly Helvectica, New Century Schoolbook,
Courier, and Symbol.  Sometimes I use the Courier Bold.  I also
use an OCR-B font.  How many are you using?  What do you find
most useful?

Regards,

Steve N.

 :idea: If you can put each different font into 1 page (like a template where you can see all the chars for that particular font, maybe using the screen zoom), let's say you use 10 second per each one of this pages of chars, for each font, to watch them each one of them. Because you took 10 seconds for each and you have a total of 10000 differents fonts, you will need 10x10000=100000 seconds to see all this pages. As you know 60 seconds are a minute so 100000/60=1667 will give us 1667 minutes approximately. As you know 60 minutes are an hour so we have 1667/60=28 that give us 28 hours approximately. As you also know 24 hours give a day so 28/24=1 day and 4 hours. That's the time approximately you need to see all the fonts in those conditions (having them like pages, seeing them without stop even to go to the bathroom  :biggrin:, etc). Of course you will need to make pauses, sleep, etc. Also it will be good to mark in someway the fonts you like, etc. Also later, probably, you will need fonts from your collection that aren't marked, so you will need to start looking again...and again...and... :P

My diagnose: 10000 fonts!  :dazzled:

That's actually a great idea  :icon_mrgreen:!    But probably this kind of algo will control our lives even more in the future...:shock: Think in all the spyware from the internet making a list of pages we visit and then making decisions on the ads  "we want or need". Sounds scary too: In the future all will be binary until the quantum computer comes to the rescue!  :lol:
