Free: 465 fonts, OpenCards and FusionCharts

Today seems to be a slow news day, at least for me. :) So I took some time to update the look of this blog although I'm still not satisfied (I never am). I guess you should be prepared for more design changes, but then again I'm always tinkering with the design every now and then. :)

But I digress... :P

465 Free Fonts

Ok, so the title at CrunchBang is . But you can actually use it for Windows and Macs as well since the fonts come in ttf (that stands for true type font in case you're wondering) format. Downloading this should give you all 465 fonts which you can then extract and install on your system. Or if you prefer, you can visit the and install them individually.

If you need help installing fonts on Windows, here's the simplest way I know of:
  1. Find the font files you want installed.

  2. Move those font files into C:\Windows\Fonts.

  3. Windows should pop up a dialog showing the font installation progress.

  4. Profit!


Since has done a wonderful job of describing itself, I shall not attempt my own description. :) OpenCards is
a flashcard learning extension for OpenOffice Impress. The basic idea of OpenCards is to use slide-titles as flashcard fronts and the slide contents as their backs. Based on state-of-the-art memorization and scheduling algorithms OpenCards will help you to learn any set of flashcards.

And since also happens to be free (not really a coincidence :) ), this entire flashcard solution is totally free! But don't get your hopes up just yet. OpenCards is still in alpha, so installing it is not really recommended yet, but keep a lookout for future versions. :)

FusionCharts Free

FusionCharts Free is a flash-based charting plugin that doesn't require you to have any Flash knowledge in order to use it. With FusionCharts Free, you can make that can be viewed in most modern browsers (well if they support Flash). FusionCharts Free like some fancy effects, but should be adequate for personal or non-commercial use (which by the way is its intended usage).

I took a look inside the FusionCharts Free download and was quite impressed with the package. As FusionCharts relies on XML, it should be relatively trivial to generate the required XML for FusionCharts to parse in your favorite programming language. If you're not too sure how to go about it, tutorials for PHP and ASP are also provided in the package. In fact, the download comes with a fairly comprehensive guide that should get you up and running in no time (my estimate would be 10 - 15min for a simple chart).

And that wraps up today's freebies. Come back tomorrow for more! Or see !
