Hanging Your "G"s Out in Public

For those of you who are in love with your own handwriting but can't align it with the overuse of technology in today's society, I've found the perfect marriage. Fontifier lets you download a template sheet and will translate your script into a computer font. Worth $9?

Oh, and my perfect crime investigator job? Handwriting analysis. Seriously. I knew more at one point, but I'll never look at cursive "g"s the same way again.

This is wild! It would be fun to type letters this way and have it look like a personalized note. Though, I don't know about staring at a full screen of story text with my handwriting as the font...I have difficulty enough just translating my plotting scribbles from paper to the computer :-).

That actually scares me. I can't imagine anything mechanical being able to recreate my hen-scratching.

So, is all the hand-writing investigating for the new book?

No handwriting in this novel, but I have considered it as a future hero/heroine's occupation.

The link came from "Woman's Day" (not mine!) Thanks, Mom.

Wow.

I actually paid close to a hundred dollars for something that sounds similar back in the early 90's. I wonder if I still have the diskette... Probably not compatible with anything past Windows 95, anyway.
Will have to check this out!
