    I prefer Book Antiqua. And love Courier New for the typewriter style.

    Although "Bohemian Typewriter" looks much cooler.

    I'm actually quite partial toward Arial. I find it sleek and simple. That said, I have absolutely no typographical sense beyond "fonts which look like any kind of handwriting shouldn't be used in serious contexts", so my taste is dubious at best.

    Neither of these are installed on my browser, so they just appear as Times New Roman to me...

    Courier New is my go-to font for programming, where having a monospace font is a must.
    (Did you know that some installations of Eclipse default to a kerned font in its factory settings? It looks horrible!)

    I tend to default to Times New Roman, though I don't particularly like it. I do enjoy Arial, funnily enough. Also whatever font my browser is currently displaying for the forum, though I'm not sure what it is. Verdana?

    That font is bad, and whoever uses it should feel bad. I typically use Times New Roman or Book antiqua Also, Hi everyone! It has been a while! I'm working retail now and am about to start an online bachelors program in the spring semester through Clarion University, it's way north of Pittsburgh. BS liberal studies with an English concentration. Also have been running a 5e campaign with friends, am eight chapters into the novel I'm writing, and am also in a 3.5 campaign with the same group of friends I game with and one of my friends is DMing.

    Palatino ftw!

    I have been increasingly not on board with Calibri since it became the default Microsoft Office font and it started appearing on millions of black-on-white A4 printouts sellotaped to glass doors saying Please Contact Facility's for access Outside 9:00-18.00am. But it's a step up from Arial in that regard at least.

    Alas, I don't drink, and out of mercy to the people around me, I generally avoid trying to dance.

    The funny is strong with these posts. I haven't danced, ever. Actually skipped the only school dance I could've gone to by faking sick. It didn't sound fun anyway being that it was a no contact dance at my horrible special education school.

    My credit card company has this thing where if they think a purchase is suspicious, they send me an email to ask if I did this.

    Yes, yes I most certainly did.

    Oh, that was a great week at the worlds larges beverage trade fair!

    Now I know what kind of abuse my body can take while my mind still stays intakt, with me still acting as a respectable businessman.

    Had the chance to taste some 54€/bottle beer, as well as a very fine Old Masters 1500€/bottle Havana Club rum and found both very very impressive.

    I´m a friend of classic cocktails, so I was pleased to taste a barrel aged (Havana Club, 3 years, 50l) Vespa and an Old Fashioned based on Ryoma and salted caramel.

    Braubeviale and Drinktec function a bit different. For example, every major hops or malt supplier is present and wants to showcase their product (in action).
    Using Bavaria Mandarine (Hüll) as an example, that means they did each of the major beer styles using that one hop, so you could sample a Pilsener, Helles, Lager, IPA..... whatever using that kind of hops.
    U.S. Hops and Yakima Chiefs went a different route and brought one craft beer showcasing the strength of one of their hops each.
    In addition, every manufacturing plant company tried to showcase one of their major craft brewer customers.....
    All in all, I´d guess we had over 3000 beers on tap and I managed to sample roughly 400 of them.

    Very impressive! Sampling 400 beers? How long did this go on for?
    The festival I worked at was a locally organised one so in a way different size category but it had a nice quality to it all the same.
    It focussed on special beers, mainly IPA's instead of ''regular'' beers like Pilsener and Helles. Also despite being locally organised we had about seven different kinds from the USA.(Now I know what Grimbold drinks, ha)

    I'm still around, occasionaly.

    Pretty decent. Life is a bit chaotic due to getting too little hours at my current/old job but it opens my time up for some freelancing. For example this week there was the craft beer festival I talked about and the week before that I was bartending at the first class/floor section for two Metallica shows. I miss the financial stability a bit but in the end getting paid to work at these kind of events is pretty awesome.

    How are you?

    Also, yeah, I still haven't figured out how to fix that. I found some of my old avatars on Photobucket where they seem to work fine but when I try to use them as my profile picture they just link that Photobucket image.
