Pilot Handwriting

Pilot (pen company)

Pilot Pen has created a free method for you to turn your handwriting into your own computer font. See the video here. The site also has a grid for you to download, to write your handwritten letters and numbers into, which you can then post back to the site by either capturing with a scanner or webcam! Their software then converts your handwritten characters into your own personal font. Pretty neat.  


So, the Pilot 78G fountain pen isn't the only great thing from the company. :-)

Bobby Fischer Is Exhumed

"The remains of Bobby Fischer, the American chess champion, were exhumed Sunday night in the cemetery of Laugardaelir Church in Iceland, according to a report in The Reykjavik Grapevine.

The exhumation was ordered to see if Fischer is the father of nine-year-old Filipino girl as part of a fight over his estate."

Goof Appears in Declaration of Independence

"With one smudge of a feathered fountain pen back in 1776, American
history changed forever." 



Of course, Jefferson didn't write with a fountain pen -- feathered or otherwise! :-)
