Here's my webtrip for today and yet another reason why I love the internet (I don't know if this is the 462nd reason but it can't be far off).
I visited the Pramblers Oxfam page after being sent a link at work. I loved the font at the top and wanted to know what it was. I started with the Posterous site (which, incidentally, seems pretty cool, cross between a blog and Facebook? They've just introduced a new feature where you can comment on things posted on your site through your e-mail, apparently e-mail is the new e-mail... interesting). They had what looked like the font across their homepage so I searched around their site to see if I could find out what font they used. I couldn't.
After trying to work out for ages what the font looked like, I realised what it reminded me of: the (RED) font. So I searched for (RED) font and came up with nothing, and went on the (RED) site to see if they had any information about it. They didn't.
So I searched for "how do I find out what font a website has". Immediately a forum appears at the top of the results and after a click and a scroll, someone writing back in 2006 tells me to right click, click on View Source, and it will be "in there somewhere".
They were spot on. It was. It's this: Alternate Gothic FS No 3
It's my new favourite font.
I'll leave with this which ends today's webtrip. Whilst on the Posterous blog, I also found out about these guys, "We sing your tweets". Quite a cool idea and I think they sound pretty good.
