    ATM is good shit.
    If you're adding 4000 fonts to your system it allows you to oragnize them in folders (or sets), add them to your system fonts, activate and deactivate with the click of a button for use in any application, it searches for duplicates /damaged so you can either deactivate or trash, gives previews... all this without restarting.

    all in all good shit if you use a heavy amount of fonts.

    I hear RAYGUN is the newest shit for all your 'garagerock' flyers.
    And NEUROPOL is what all the rave kids like to see.



    hahaha..... I'm a font snob.... really.

    a bad font tells me exactly just how lame the designer and creative can be.

    My favorite font is selfish... I want the whole alphabet tattooed on my back. Okay, not really, but I fucking love it.
