{#Lol}  What lovely work.

Do you upload the design to an Amazon site or is it a third party?

For months now I have a customer complaining that he cannot log in to the website. His complaint is that the website alters his password spontainously (or I do it for fun). I know his password. I even recognise the hashed version of his password in the database. It is not changed ever. I always can log in.
The annoying thing is that customer support from the large company I work for believes the customer. The company decided that he is an important customer and they assigned a person to him so it's always the same women I talk to. I always ask she checked his complaint. She always say that she too cannot log in with the password, so it must be altered. (she did not check at all) The first 3 times I checked the website and database to see if the password was changed. If I replied that I checked the password and it's working (with a screenshot showing that I logged in using his username) then it doesn't work for the customer and also the women from customer support. If I say that I reset the password and everything is cool now then everybody is happy and the problem is gone for a few weeks. So now when the 'problem' shows up I swiftly reply the email with 'password reset is done already' and everybody is happy. I even got a thumbs up from my manager for my quick actions.
I never ever did any password reset. 

 
{#Lol}  My strategy would be, "There seems to be a bug in our system that is causing a problem with this password. Please chose a new password, Minimum 10 characters must include a mix of lower and upper case, at least one number and non-alphanumeric character." After a few times trying to learn a new password, they will give up and type it in properly.

Some free fonts (fka typefaces)!

The link for "Caneletter" goes to a different font, but you can search the site for the correct one.

You'd be a good candidate for an e-Reader that lets you choose the font your book is in. Tho I'm not sure they'd let you pick Courier. Anyway, most people have some one particular font that just reads perfectly for them. I read a book last year, can't remember what it was, but the font was so hard for me to read, I kept skipping lines etc. I looked it up and it was a well-known book text font that I'd never had a problem with before, but probably hadn't had an entire book of it either...

I checked a report from 1986 out of the library and it was printed in Courier. And not that emaciated, thin line version that HP foisted off on us with their laser printers but proper dark, crisp, and easy to read, none-of-that proportional crap or excess frou-frou. Maybe I'm borderline dyslexic but this is so easy on my eyes compared to anything recent I have read. And as a bonus, you can make columns and numbers easily line up vertically. We seem to be swimming in font gluttony today, and I sure miss the simpler times (no, not Times) that plain worked. Dang designers.

I could have put this in any one of a number of rant topics but why do that when I can blame you guys?
