Jgs Font is a font family made as a tribute to Joan G. Stark (a.k.a. jgs, Spunk), pioneer of ASCII art. 

This font has been specifically designed to draw ASCII art. Its bitmap look and its shapes accentuate the ambiguity between text and drawing. The "graphic" properties of the characters have been exaggerated depending on the way ASCII artists use them.

The glyphs that make up Jgs Font can be combined from one character to the next in line or from one line to another. It allows, by association of characters, to produce continuous lines, curves, frames, patterns, levels of gray.

In order to be able to change body size while maintaining these pixel-perfect continuity effects, the family is available in three fonts.

Jgs5 for body text sizes that are a multiple of 10 : 10px, 20px, 30px etc. Jgs7 for body text sizes that are a multiple of 14 : 14px, 28px, 42px etc. Jgs9 for body text sizes that are a multiple of 18 : 18px, 36px, 54px etc.

For better results, the body size and the leading need to have exactly the same value and correspond to the multiples cited above.

NFTs & AI are being used by evil capitalists to steal people's work and money
AI is scary simply because it provides a way for corporations to exploit their employees even harder. u/prettypinknitrous
AI practitioners have concerned themselves with reproducing something that can mimic an individual human brain, failing to notice that if such a brain is to mimic human intelligence it will also have to mimic the process of becoming socialised in human society because crucial features of human intelligence are located in human societies. One notable example of this is natural language, which is continually changing and enormously flexible in ways that cannot be predicted or controlled by individuals. The fluent natural language speaker draws on society's language in the same way that a thermometer draws on the liquid in which it is embedded. The temperature that registers on the thermometer is a property of the liquid, not the thermometer, changing when the liquid warms or cools. In the same way the language spoken by a fluent individual is a property of the society in which he or she is embedded, not a property of the individual; like the thermometer, it changes when the society changes.

A bulletin board system (BBS) is a computer or an application dedicated to the sharing or exchange of messages or other files on a network. Originally an electronic version of the type of bulletin board found on the wall in many kitchens and work places, the BBS was used to post simple messages between users. The BBS became the primary kind of online community through the 1980s and early 1990s, before the World Wide Web arrived.
