2 cool things for your puter

This cleartype thing, if you are using a flatscreen monitor it makes your fonts in Windows look awesome!

And I also found this. Most of you linux peeps know you can mount your NTFS partitions (read-only of course) when you are booted into Linux. Well you can also mount your Linux ext2/ext3 partitions when you are in windows!!

I’m using both of them now, very handy.

    That’s amazing. In order to read a USB drive which was in ext3 on Windows, earlier today I downloaded and installed ext2fsd which does the same job. Spooky coincidence.

    I’m not entirely convinced about this ClearType thing…. it seems to make all my non-Italic fonts significantly bolder, and fuzzier – though Verdana (I assume the font on this comment box is Verdana) looks great. I’m going to give it another while and see.

    Hrm, thats strange. All my fonts look great now (at work and at home).

    I don’t have any bold or fuzzy ones.
