Death Be Not Proud
There’s a lot of things out there that I get satisfaction from. The schadenfreude of seeing Republicans everywhere get FINALLY called on the carpet for at least a modicum of their transgressions. Barry Bonds hitting #715 if for no other reason than to shut up the whiny sportswriters who feel superior to him. But it says an inordinate amount about my geek quotient that this might make me happiest of all:
Earlier this year, Microsoft released betas of Office 2007, and the first thing reviewers noticed, besides the new interface, was that Times New Roman had been deposed as the default font with something called . . . Calibri?
I really hate Times New Roman. There’s no good reason for the level of dislike I have for it – it just seems lazy to me. When I see documents in that font, it suggests to me a lack of creativity or personality in the writer. Is that fair? Probably not, but that is the wonder of me. Presumably, I’ll grow to loathe this new Calibri font as much, though it’s initially much more appetizing to look at.
