      Hey,

      I’m trying to find some custom fonts online but i either find sites with an infuriating number of pop-ups and almost never ending “Click here for your font” links or fonts that i have to pay for.

      paying for stuff is just _not_ on! :P

      does anybody have a good site for fonts?

      cheers!

      yup, dafont is dabomb.
      There used to be quite a number of such free fonts websites, but for some reason a lot seem to have disappeared :(
      I like dafont cos it has useful categories. That really helps find what you want!
      elkfont used to be great but like many others it vanished…

      just be careful man alot of people off my clan are into making sigs and what not, and ALL of them warned me about holding to many fonts as it really slows things down…………….so just tread carefully :o

      well it does, cos they are loaded in memory, but you have to appreciate that that was true a few years ago when you machine was a Pentium…
      nowadays with a big fat double core or what have you.

      Cos if you want to go that way, you shouldn’t have big fat JPEGs for your background picture. Now that’s a few megs of memory gone for nothing.

      It’s all relative :roll:

      it’s good to have some kind of font manager (like ‘font thing’ – thats free and kind of good) – the ‘big-fat-double-core-machine’ won’t help if u have 6000 fonts in the system – its just hard to navigate through them…

      ahh yee – dafont rulezz anyway :)
