That is awesome ! extracting it as we speak ....
thanks for that
I posted a link to this thread in here:
Ambush will probably add it to his exhaustive list of freeware sometime tonight (guestimate).
In the meantime I have another recommendation that should be put in the first post for the noobs downloading these fonts:
Adjust to your liking.
Edit: made it easier to understand.
Using the The Font Thing atm, but does anybody know of a Font manager that lets you 'tag' fonts as favourites?
Edit: Azureus doesn't like that torrent :/
/me points to second link in his previous post.
Edit: In The Font Thing, you can just create a new collection folder called "favourites" in the collection tab and -copy- your favourite fonts to that.
I have all 7000 of these fonts sorted into their own alphabetical collection folders (ie: A, B, C... etc).
Makes it easy to find specific fonts.
Seeing as how no one is interested in using the bittorrent service, I'm going to pull the plug for the time being. There isn't enough demand to have it and a direct download link.
Thanks thetron for providing the tracker site and allowing us to share your bandwidth.
titan, are you absolutely certain that that file can remain on that link indefinately (forever?)?
Hrmm I've stil got them sorted into letter folders, just trying to find one's I've previously liked is going to be the problem. Making the fav folder might work, but then it seperates the fonts.. Was hoping to somehow tag the fonts so I can filter it later... Maybe some simple shortcuts might be in order...
Edit: Found the solution. 'Collections' in The Font Thing.
You just -copy- the fonts to the collection folder not -move- them there...
*chuckle* That would work too.
But the collections feature of The Font Thing is just what I was after.
Can then group them by uses etc etc
Thats the idea Skit.
I've put up a mirror of the 7000 Fonts file. Again it's in 7Zip as I CBF re-compressing it with RAR or Ace and besides, it appears 7Zip's as small as it gets. Current versions of WinRAR will open it, and surely everyone here would already have that!
Consider the mirror currently still in testing. For now it's hosted on my home ADSL link so the best speed you'll get is about 20-25KB/sec. When I'm using my link though, it'll be throttled back to 10-15KB/sec depending what I'm doing. The server's limited to two connections and each IP is limited to one concurrent connection (so limit your download manager appropriately). This hopefully means while it may take nearly two hours to download, anyone can get a turn eventually. If no one bothers to use the mirror because the others are faster or whatever, I'll take it down until/if I find somewhere better for it.
Obviously given that it's running off the same link I use for work (and play) there are times when it might be unavailable. If that happens, try again in a few hours or the next day. It's hosted on a VMWare WinXP Pro box using HFS 1.6 so it's even possible the VM session will pack it in occasionally.
It is appreciated, even if no one bothers to use it.
Sure am. Considering I'm the one that decides what stays and what goes on that network.
Great! thanks titan.
I wasn't sure, so I had to ask.
Someone's on there now getting ~22KB/sec so good on them. Guess it works.
I'm out till later tonight (onsite, then off to the 64bit Windows launch) so full upload bandwidth will be available until I get home, after 8pm I imagine.
That's a fast link i got over 1mb a second. However with all the font's installed photoshop takes ages to with the text tool :[ hehe.
See below. Installing all the fonts is not a good idea. Only install what you need at the time.
Another mirror, http://28268.com/ocau/7000_free_fonts.7z
Will most likely stay up there indefinitely, as I'll forget about it.. Should have some pretty decent speeds too.
Transfer has been limited to 100gig a month.
I will be removing fontdownload.cjb.net at the end of the May just to let people know...
When i use all 7000 fonts in Adobe Illustrator CS as was recomended NOT to do the program crashes just after it loads the fonts anyone know why?
