Wow……..what a great list!! I’ve almost fallen in love with WhatTheFont – font recognition system. It’s actually going to keep me busy for the next few days ;)

Great list that contains sites that most of us have never heard of. Really useful and informative.

It was a very nice idea! Just wanna say thank you for the information you have shared. Just continue writing this kind of post.

I have a pending charge on my bank card and the “merchant” is listed as “9 online.” I don’t know who 9 online is and am worried about the legitimacy of that request for authorization to pay them. I am worried this mite be fraud and must get in touch with my bank immediately.. I am disabled and it is very difficult dealing with this from home as it is hard to get to my branch. Hence my need for your reply. You may call me instead of writing. 215-568-3113.

Please answer immediately.

Thanks.
