The Papyrus font is now gone in Windows 8

Posted June 1st, 2012 at 10:34 PM by Twiggy (Diaries of a Quadruped)

Good riddance? That font sure looked out of place, then again. I do think that anything using that font will look screwed up on computers running Windows 8 or later...

Also, one neat things I have noticed is that Comic Sans MS now has true italics, and not merely slanted letterforms. It's especially noticeable with its lowercase t's.

Strange things for today, eh?

As it turns out, the day I was accepted to some university was also the day I first encountered a site where browsers too modern will screw up.

Good news: I'm now studying in Computer Science.

Bad news: Why do I have to bother with IE7 Compat Mode while logging in for student pass stuff? Then again, maintaining websites must be hard enough as is.

Note to 3DS Internet Browser developers:

You might not want to rely on the CPU too much for web browsing these days. Or use nearest neighbourhood filtering. Really, the 3DS does have a great GPU to use. Maybe they need to have some lessons from the Safari team?

(I miss Opera. Nintendo, can we have Opera Software ASA back?)

Crash?

A problem has been detected and your brain has been shut down to prevent damage

Hey, if I'm not that active these days...

My computer's browsers are acting funny.

Internet Explorer 10 suddenly loses security tokens on PC, so it now makes me log out and log in just to do exactly one action... and then I have to do it over again.

Firefox 11 isn't faring well, either. Although it's usable, it's barely usable. Glitchy interfaces just makes me have a bad day. "PC Supporter 3" replacing the standard "Minimize/Restore/Close" buttons on the window, anyone?

UPDATE...
