ABOUT







alt.binaries.fonts

Newsgroup with many postings, loaded with hints, tips, pointers, subliminal messages and hacker info. It was quite active between 1990 and 2007. Here is a text I wrote in its heyday: On slow days, about 5 fonts get posted, while on some days (like December 17, 1997), over 1000 fonts are posted. In 1997, virtually every Adobe font was posted, as well as many fonts from Image Club Graphics, T-26, Letraset and ITC. Towards the end of 1998, the flow of fonts had dried up. In 1999 and 2000, it picked up again, with some posts having up to 10,000 commercial fonts in them. In the early 2000s, the Adobe collection gets posted about once per year in its entirety.

In recent years, past 2007, the site has come to a virtual standstill. See also StBen, StBen II, Usenet Replayer, binsearch.info, ngindex (not free, but one can see what is available).
