Typ.io – is a font lover’s dream. As well as libraries containing details of tens of thousands of fonts, the site also helps designers who are unsure of which fonts go together. So if you choose a font on the site, you will be given recommendations on more fonts to go along with it. You will also be given links to the sites that host and sell those particular fonts.

    Losing ~1.5 to ~2lbs. a week for a month can either require a tremendous amount of work or it can be gamed very easily. Losing 6 - 8lbs. of fat? Huge pain. Losing 6 - 8lbs. of WATER? Super simple.

    Drink a couple liters of water in the late afternoon just before your first weigh in, then avoid the Frappucinos the rest of the month. Use a diuretic and avoid liquids before your last weigh in.

    As somebody who really has done a lot of hard work to get my weight down, I also know that I vary as much as 10lbs. over the course of a normal day. Knowing that, Dietbet seems like it sends the wrong messages about how one should go about weight loss.

    Mixing and matching fonts seems to be a trend in Web Design now. I notice it especially in bold headlines. Font pairing is an art and Typ.io is really useful there.
