I’m not a typographer. These are (mostly) the Microsoft C* fonts that are freely available across platforms and included with Office (and Windows eventually) since 2003. 
I’ve been using Cambria for a while as my main body text. Distinctive yet I can count on most everyone having it. Calibri is where I go for sans-serif - especially when sharing the page with Cambria. I think their x-heights are similar and so they pair well. Calibri is the default font for most Office apps now (unless you go with a template). 
I don’t use Constantia or Corbel much - but I’ve grouped them here because, like Cambria and Calibri, I think their similar x-heights pair well. If I go with one, then I’ll also use the other. Lots of respect for both on the web.
Candara seems to garner a lot of praise. I wonder, however, if that’s just because it’s not really used much. Interesting swells along the letterforms, but it starts to feel like Papyrus to me. I dunno.
Franklin Gothic (medium here) seems interesting because, compared to the others, it’s perpetually bold. I might start using that in email replies if I embed my response inline with the original message to help make it stand out. Of course, it’s not a C* font. Just mentioning it.
Consolas is great for showing code or any other situation where I want a fixed-width font that needs to be shared with others. For personal use, I prefer the excellent DejaVu Sans Mono… but Consolas ain’t no slouch. Both give me a zero indicator (slash for Consolas, dot for Deja) which I love, love, love. Courier New is old and tired (and not a C* font either). Meh.

After finding a copperhead snake in my driveway - and countless other weird vermin - I’m ready to call North Carolina a close second.

Beer. Soap. The yardstick of civilization.

 

Just wondering… am I the only person who considers the iPod touch to be a tablet computer?

Lots of folks call it “the iPhone without a phone”. But I’ve never seen it referred to as a tablet. Seriously, the current iPod touch pushes more pixels than the new iPad mini. 

Wonder what adding the iPod touch to Apple’s overall tablet sales numbers would do?

The genius who brings us xkcd has a new blog where he explains what would happen in unlikely scenarios. His first one takes a swing at what would happen trying to hit a baseball thrown at 90% the speed of light. Based on this image, it’s not good.
(via what if?)
