What are the fonts used in these iconic Infocom ads: 1 2
? I'm particularly interested in the 'Many are the doors...' font and the 'Apple II...' font from 1, and the 'WE'RE WRITING' font from the second. I can find stuff that's close with WTF et al, but not the same.

A MacOS n00b (me) seeks knowledgable a MacOS user to help him with a problem. I've connected my brand new Mac Mini to an HDTV via an HDMI cable. I'm running it in 1080p since I bought the mini to use as an HTPC. But in this resolution, system text (such as the wind name, the URL bar in Safari etc) is killing my eyes. It's pretty small and barely readable from my couch. How do I fix this?

What font did Alfred Hitchcock use for the intertitles in his 1928 silent comedy Champagne
? Sample here.
Identifont and WhatTheFont have both failed me. I'm looking for a free replica or close match.

Is there an extension that lets use my own font choices in Chrone? Firefox has an option that doesn't let web sites choose fonts and I want something like that. There's one called Plainclothes and it does too many other things.

I'm having trouble choosing which font(s) to use -- for example, for a flyer or poster. I don't have a graphic design background or much experience with it, but sometimes I have to design simple pieces for my job. Are there any introductory online resources that can help me learn more so that no one will point and laugh when they see a flyer I made? I'll be looking at this thread
and this thread
, too. My main fear is that I'll put something together and someone will point and laugh and say, "Oh no, you used THAT font?"

What typeface is this
they're using in the Subterranean logo?
What The Font and Identifont have not helped narrow it down, so I thought I would tap into the hive mind to see if you all knew what it is.

What is this font
? I'm trying to match the cute, handwritten scroll feeling of "just add ice." I'm happy to find a typeface either to buy or a free download. OpenType preferred. My results from Identifont weren't close.

Does anyone know of a free Traditional Chinese kaishu-style font that looks like it was written with a ballpoint pen or pencil (not a calligraphic pen or brush)? I'm currently using HanWangFangSongMedium from this page
, which I quite like, but it's in fangsong style. It's for my computer flashcards when trying to remember how to write characters (e.g English word -> Chinese character). [more inside]
