MailFrontier Phishing IQ test

[textile] This is an interesting one, a test to see how adept you are at ideifying fraudent e-mails coming your way. Most of these look real, with corporate logos and business-like english, but could turns out to be anything from spammer’s address collection to stealing your credit card information. “Take The Test”: I’m a little […]


[textile] via “PHP-Princess”: “MOZiE”: is a neat little tool that lets you compare the rendition of a web page in Mozilla and IE at the same time. Discrepancies are much easier to spot this way, and I like the scroll-synching! A nice touch. There is also buttons to switch between a few windows sizes, to […]

Durian and Alcohol

[textile] I have heard it many times before, that eating durian with alcohols could be fatal. I was buying it, but not completely. Today a guy name s.suk at “wahkor”: explained the process, and it sounds plausible.

unicode font ฟอนท์ unicode


Why is it so hard to find a decent unicode font? I was looking so long for one with characters in the Thai language range, to use for my post title. There were a few but most are crap.

The few unicode fonts that come with Windows do have all the glyphs, but they were plain ugly. And the english and thai glyph doesn’t match at all. They just try to put Times with any serif fonts and Arial with any san-serif. (And who want these two in prints? let alone one the web) Also the fonts are badly scaled to match the x-height for thai and english characters.

Tahoma would be the only one decent font from the lot. Looks good at text down to subscript sizes, but it is far too industrial as header text.

Today I found this font called code2000 from “ωωω.őřωέłł.řů test page”: , and think it might do the job (for now, I really need to use thai header sometimes). The latin glyphs look quite humanist and relax, but thai glyphs are blocky. The font is still beta, and I’m still checking if I need a license.

number one Chrisada

Matt at claims he is the number 1 Matt in the world, according to Google. Well I am then the undisputed number one Chrisada in the world! At the time of writing, all 10 entries in the first search page refer to me. I’m sure in countries other than Thailand, Chrisada sounded just like […]
