Ecofont

Ecofont is an environmentally-friendlier typeface intended to save toner by making the font more or less hollow.  As you can see from the graphic above, the font has holes to cut down on the overall footprint.  When the font is printed in it's actual size, it is intended to appear just like any other font.  Check it out at www.ecofont.eu.  An added bonus is that Ecofont can be downloaded for free.

Ever wanted to know the answer to a question, but haven't been able to find an answer through standard search methods?  Yahoo and Google both have their own brand of question and answer websites, but Mahalo allows for cash payouts based on the answers provided to questions.  I believe the site is in Beta at the moment, but it seems to be extremely effective (and quick) at providing users the answers to their questions.  Users can strengthen their answers with references and the individual posing the question gets to select what they feel is the best answer for their question.  I have used it just for some general opinion questions with desirable results.
