Re: "Matches" Challenge

I thought about "breaking" the matchsticks to make curves, but decided that would add too many points, but perhaps the numbers could be like this:

Re: "Matches" Challenge

I've never seen curved matches ! They might be a little awkward to use :lol: Steam wood and you can bend it any way you want. https://i.pinimg.com/originals/3d/99/20/3d99205d5fc729c413af6b3ea2f23e44.jpg https://i.pinimg.com/564x/05/13/b1/0513b1a20490f4685e478a24a798f8f8.jpg https://i.pinimg.com/564...

"Matches" Challenge

I thought about creating a new "Matchstick" font, took a look at what was already out there, and was not impressed. I started my own, but at 83 my hands are too shaky. Here are my beginnings, the challenge is to finish the font. https://i.pinimg.com/564x/0d/f1/49/0df149c2e3db7040a3e7955c328a1ff9.jpg...

I am replacing all my images ...

Re: WGL4 and Box Drawing -- seriously?

As long as a font does what YOU want it to and YOU are happy with it - IT IS PERFECT.

Perfect is Good Enough.

Re: Ancient Gothic

Who is the greater expert on Gothic script, the Unicode committee or a scribe from the fifth century writing in his native language? The Unicode committee without a doubt.

Re: Comparing fonts

Bhikkhu Pesala's solution is what I used when trying to decide on which stencil font to use.

By typing in the exact message I would make, it was easy to discard fonts with no numbers, only caps, difficult to hand cut, etc.
