(This post is from my old, old, super old site. My views have changed over the years, hopefully my writing has improved, and there is now more than a handful of folks reading my site. Enjoy.)

A little chatting was going on in #macsb this morning about creating fonts, and I brought up that I had created a font at one point named "GMPokey." I looked it up real quick and realized based on its upload date that GMPokey celebrated its 10th anniversary yesterday.

It's obviously not a very good font, but I really didn't care when I was making it. The point was to make a font and understand what goes into it. Creating your own font is time consuming and tedious. It's painful. I bet the tools have gotten a lot better in the past 10 years, but the thought of trying it again makes me cringe.

Download GMPokey if you dare.
