  • Dang. It's only for licensed users of Microsoft Visual Studio 2005.

  • Really? I downloaded it and it didn't complain.

  • Weird. I'm on up-to-date XP and it the setup installer gets to a certain point and then a window pops up stating "Microsoft Visual Studio 2005 must be installed prior to installing this package."

  • Maybe it's because I installed the free Visual Studio Web Express Edition one day (since uninstalled).

  • Levysoft - Triskeline is a great, nostalgic font. Reminds me of the font on my Apple IIc.

    BTW, Inconsolata is a great monospaced font for Firefox! Looks good as I type into this text box.
