can read my confession here.)
At some point, many font addicts find it

This is my contribution to CybaPee's
tribute to Jami, the beloved, recently retired founder and webmaster
of the late lamented True Type Resource. CybaPee and some others
have taken the torch from Jami and are continuing the work he
started over several different sites as Typesource by Proxy. You can download this
font and other people's offerings on the "Font Happening" page.

If this is not your cup of beer, try visting the Babel
Fish and entering http://www.fugit-tempus.de/progothics/index.htm

a big "thank you" to Gene Roddenberry and Douglas Adams
