While the idea is simple - the whole layout, and stats are blowing me away. Contact cfgb Visit my homepage Promote this thread!

AIM: # 3 Posted on 23.1.02 0429.54 Reposted on: 23.1.09 0459.01 Hey Robert, I'm a fan of the lines as well. One question- did you start using a more narrow font recently? The past few updates were really hard to read for me- the last SD lines, especially. I'M A TOOL, PLEASE KICK ME IN THE JUNK

I'm obsessed with stats as well. I run the record book at Weekly Visitor. I'm nowhere near as skilled at PDF, so I just use your basic HTML. I hope you get a chance to look at it. My only question is that I noticed Billy Gunn had a .833 record, or 5-1 if you put it that way. Did you count losing in the Royal Rumble as a loss? (image removed)

AIM: # 5 Posted on 23.1.02 1135.58 Reposted on: 23.1.09 1154.49 Yes, I credited the Royal Rumble as a straight win-loss deal. It may seem out of place, per se, but I think that is the best way to keep track. Yes, I am using a narrower font; it allows me to write in more as necessary without shrinking the font height. But I think I can simply alter the spacing between letters to remedy the problem. "Oooh, aaah, eeee, yaaaaahhhhhhh! Rrrrrr, oooooo, yarrrgh! You son of a....oohhhhh, eeeeeeee!" Homer Simpson

I dunno about all you guys, but I can't read it. Here's what I see: (image removed)

I'm guessing your x pdf viewer thingy just doesn't like them...

Mac? Dunno if it'd make a difference anyway.

I suppose I could go out and buy a copy of Windows... Nah.

That's what I use on my UNIX box...

Y!: # 12 Posted on 20.3.02 1014.22 Reposted on: 20.3.09 1020.21 It looks more like a font issue to me. Under acroread, check out File->Document Info->Fonts. The little dialog box says that all the fonts there are TrueType fonts with a Windows encoding. So not only is Acrobat Reader probably a good idea, you'll also want to truss yer gear up to use TrueType fonts. Assuming you're using XFree86 4.x, this shouldn't be a problem, as there's a TrueType font server (i.e. Freetype) built right in...all you need to do is get the basic Windows fonts from a nearby Windows box (there are several ways to do this), configure them for X, add them to your fontpath, and go. /t
