La mejor fuente para tamaños pequeños de letra

Tahoma es la ideal. Hay fuentes pensadas para su uso cuando hay que trabajar per-pixel, en cuadrículas de 3×3, 4×4, 5×5 pero en el uso general Tahoma es suficientemente compacta, legible (a pesar de ser sans serif, cuando la leo parece que sí que los contenga) y adaptada para su uso en cualquier OS o aplicación. Segoe UI es incluso mejor, pero al parecer no todos los ordenadores pueden abrirla correctamente, así que de momento Tahoma es la escogida.

UPDATE

Tahoma sería la ideal si no fuera porque por alguna estúpida razón no puede ponerse en cursiva. En serio, es de lo más frustrante que he presenciado en mucho tiempo.

Usando Helvetica de nuevo, que tiene un documental dedicado a ella. A ver qué me depara el futuro en lo que a fuentes se refiere.

VA-11 HALL-A

Played through this Visual Novel around half a year ago. It became one of my favourite games ever (even if, as usual, it only barely qualifies as a game).

It has extremely attractive visuals, even if they are not very polished at times. The story itself is full of charm and lovely characters. I really enjoyed the bar where the action takes place, the people visiting, the slice of life VA-11 HALL-A offers. There is, as I mentioned before, little in the way of actual gameplay – but more than most Visual Novels offer: we mix drinks for the customers and our decisions sometimes push the story one way or another.

I cannot recommend this enough to all people who like videogames, anime, fantasy, cyberpunk, and all the internet-related subculture. It’s for nerds, but it’s extremely good.

Firewatch

Finally played this game. It didn’t take very long, which speaks volumes about how gripping the story is. It is not a conventional game at all – it is barely a game, if one thinks about it, as the player is essentially held by their hand through the plot. We do get to feel more immersed than with a movie, though. That is something to think about: even when the actual playability is kept to a minimum, the medium allows the spectator to visit the story in a very different way.

I’m not going to speak about the story or the characters. I think spoiler-free is where it’s at. It really is emotion-provoking though, that is for sure. I can totally recommend it, and would recommend it also as a cinematic experience. Play it even if you don’t normally play videogames, is what I mean.

Connectors in English

4-Pin Micro Connector

 

Some basic connectors:

 

First, we ate hamburgers. Then, we ate french fries. Next, we drank Fanta. Finally, we ate pudding.

These will help you put the different sentences in a text in order, specially when it’s chronological.

We have some more connectors that will help you put ideas together. Let’s imagine we want to put two sentences together:

We ate hamburgers. We ate french fries.

We can use many connectors to make them go together naturally:

We ate hamburgers. Moreover, we ate french fries.

We ate hamburgers. In addition, we ate french fries.

We ate hamburgers. Furthermore, we ate french fries.

We ate hamburgers. We also ate french fries.

We ate hamburgers. We ate french fries, as well.

We ate hamburgers. We ate french fries, too.

We ate hamburgers. Additionally, we ate french fries.

We ate hamburgers, and we ate french fries.

Not only did we eat hamburgers but also ate french fries.

We ate hamburgers. Besides that, we ate french fries.
