Yes, the title was not a typo, over 31K fonts for Windows XP, Vista, NT etc. There are multiple collections. There are several collections of TrueType Fonts (*.TTF), which make up the by far largest chunk of the whole thing, plus separate collections for font formats like Open Type Font (*.OTF), Fixed Size Bitmap Fonts (*.FON), Adobe Font Metrics Files (*.AFM) and Adobe Fonts (*.PFM + *.PFB). All in all over 1 Gigabyte (compressed) of Fonts, available for download at my Mediafire.com file share. Adobe Fonts Collection 4,000+ Adobe Fonts in PFx Format in font file pairs of: *.PFB Files (Type 1 PostScript Fonts) and *.PFM Files (Adobe Printer Outline Metrics Files) PFM Files contain font metric information used by applications for laying out lines of text in a document. They also specify the Windows font menu name, kerning pair data, and a variety of other font-level information. PFB is the Adobe Type Manager Type 1 PostScript font file format. Adobe® Type Manager® (ATM) is a system software component that automatically generates high-quality screen font bitmaps from the PostScript® outlines in Type 1 or OpenType® format. With ATM, you can scale your fonts without the characters appearing jagged, and you can also enable “font smoothing,” which further improves the appearance of your fonts onscreen by using your computer monitor’s color palette to intelligently improve the rendering of characters. ATM Light also allows you to print PostScript fonts on non PostScript printers, and can be used to create custom instances of[…]

Michael Dell, the entrepreneur who founded the computer retailer “Dell” and built it into a multi-billion dollars business must be gone from Dell. Once a poster child for customer centric marketing, web site performance enhancement making it better converting and more user friendly at the same time. Dell computers might not be the best computers on the planet in regards to their quality, but the company always made up for it via their customer support and service. It seems that the drive to improve on things stops after an order was placed and hopefully starts over after the computer was shipped to the customer. That is what I hope, because my experiences after I placed my order for a brand new Dell Studio XPS 16 Notebook on August 11, 2009 (17 days ago) things started to become really bad. Flashback I had serious issues with my computers to say it mildly. A series of hardware failures combined with the support that I paid for but never got, because the company who purchased the business from the retailer where I bought my previous notebook went out of business, 2 weeks before my hardware problems started. After all this misfortune I finally decided to buy another Dell. I purchased multiple Dell computers in the past and was overall happy with them and the service provided, if I had a problem with the machine. I thought that my string of bad luck had an end, when I saw that there is a great[…]

I guess it is time again for another collection of mine. I was able to put the new Version 2.0 of my scene release creator batch script to good use again. It was a breeze to get it ready with this new and enhanced version of it. You should check it out as well. This collection is a bit different and some of the hard core purist sceners will probably have something to bitch about it, like that you can only appreciate things, if you use the original software on the original hardware. Screw them. To show younger folks how things looked back in the days, before many of the kids were even born, then you have to provide the means to access the stuff with the current technology. If they got a taste of things and like it, then they can still go through the extra length, accept the extra cost and additional time that it takes to be authentic. Why should they do that without even knowing what they can expect in return for those extra efforts? Okay, here it comes … a Collection of Amiga & C64 Crack Intro Remakes for Win32 & Flash Enjoy 430 Win32 Remakes of Commodore Amiga and Commodore 64 cracktros created by the folks from the web site/project called Retro-Remakes.net Also enjoy 608 SWF Flash Remakes of Commodore Amiga cracktros that were re-created by the folks at Flashtro.com using the widely support Adobe’s Shockwave technology, which your browser should support to play[…]

Sorting Away MP3 Files into Sub Directories by Artist Name

I just published the post where I introduced the great and useful tool Bulk Rename Utility. I first wanted to include the content of this post into that one as well, but then decided to make it a separate post instead. The introductory post of BRU was already getting long enough, especially because I included suggestions and comments to the tool itself, which I originally intended to post at the tool authors support forums. But I wasn’t able to do that yet, so the post got pretty long and adding something else would just have been too much. I had a bunch of MP3 files dumped into a folder, several hundred of them. Songs by various artists. They came from some of my old MP3 CD-ROMs that I burned, when I didn’t have that many CDs (compared to today) and keeping things organized wasn’t much of a concern for me. Well, the amount of CDs grew significantly over the years, so sorting and grouping stuff became necessary to be able to find stuff. Also, the number of different music styles that I learned to enjoy increased. Mixing some of those styles is probably not such a great idea. The Task at Hand Anyhow, the file names followed at least some logic. They usually started with the name of the artist followed by the title of the song, separated by a hyphen or dash (-) character. Some also included the album name or release year after the song title, in parentheses[…]

You might notice already that the subject of organizing, sorting and cataloging files is one of my favorites. I am collecting and archiving a lot of stuff for personal reasons, so I have to spent a lot of time dealing with issues related to that. Since I am not an egoist and keep what I learn to myself, I am sharing what I learned with anybody who is interested in it or looks for options when he has to deal with exactly the same problems that I had. Why reinvent the wheel, right? I would like to introduce you to a tool that I learned to appreciate a lot over the time. I am so happy that I found it and still have not discovered all the featured that this tool has to offer. It’s name does not do it justice and only describes the basic and main purpose of it. This post has 2 parts. The first part is an introduction of the tool and the highlighting of some of its features. The second part has suggestions for the tool authors, problems that I found and a work-around for each of those problems that you might find helpful, if you happen to have the same problem that I had as well. You can jump directly to the second part of this post via THIS LINK: Jump to the Suggestions. Bulk Rename Utility by Jim Willsher It is called “Bulk Rename Utility” (available at BulkRenameUtility.co.uk) and was written by Jim[…]
