Just returning from a week in the south, and feeling well. By sheer verpeil0ring, I was away the whole time that tg@ spent in Basel, just a few kilometers from here. But those holidays were necessary, and I enjoyed them very much. @work, there are new stagiaires of which I don't even know the name but it does not look as if anything had moved during my absence ;).

I am trying to port ttftot42, a nifty utility for converting TrueType fonts to PostScript Type 42 (which seems to be straightforward) and, more interesting for me, can create AFM files for them. Using those fonts in Teχ is only an afm2tfm away then. The last version is from 1999 and needs freetype 1. The author—very responsive indeed!—says this is not yet fixed but promised to send me a hg snapshot. While here, we now have a mercurial (hg) port ;).
