talk about synaesthesia or boring postcards!

typography section with some information about fonts I've made
for Palm handhelds. I also added a couple of new photos to my

and cleaning up. Removed the scrolling menu on the start page.

a new and fast scanner (Canon D1250U2 using USB 2.0 interface)

had lying here. 11 postcards this time.
|July 27, 2002
||The old adress
www.typography.nu, has ceased to exist. This site is only accessible
through www.retroglobe.com. It was four great years we had,
typography.nu and I. May it rest in peace and not be exploited.

the postcard as "boring" or "not very boring"!
|January 6, 2002
||Some time ago
I bought a digital camera (Canon Digital Ixus V). I thought
it was time to put some of the photos on this site. It's available
here. At the moment there are
only 6 photos.

|October 13, 2001
||Nine new postcards.
|September 6, 2001

3000 visitors today! Thanks to buzz.bazooka.se.

||Made it easier
to send postcards (and more obvious that it can be done...).
|February 24, 2001
||I have totally
redesigned the entire site and rebuilt the script that sends
postcards. I now have more control over what happens. Some parts
of the site may not work as expected but that is hopefully only
for a short while.
|November 26, 2000
||This time I have
only updated the site with 4 new postcards, nothing else.
|October 2, 2000
addition to the site. 10 new postcards, and most of them are
really great. Check them out in the postcard section!
||There has been
a while since the last update of my site. I've moved and bought
a better computer. It has been a busy summer and all I managed
to get was 15 postcards. They were added to the site this evening.
I'm planning on redesigning the postcard pages, but more on
that some other time.
|April 30 @927,
||I've finally uploaded
the new postcards pages that uses a MS Access database to hold
all the postcards. This will result in better search possibilties
in the future. I've also added another 40 great, boring
|December 15 @898,
||24 more postcards
|November 27 @090,
a "Question of the month"-script to replace the one
I've used until now. I hope no errors occur but if you notice
anything, please tell me. The graphics on the frontpage was
|November 21 @950,
||Some of my visitors
have asked for city-names under each thumbnail. Until now this
has been quite tricky to achieve but now it's possible and it's
there! Thanks to Anders Jonson for pointing out some errors
that I've missed, he was also the latest to ask for the city-names,
and he got what he wanted!
|November 14 @935,
||Added two new
categories to my "Categorized postcards".
|November 11 @893,
||I've finally finished
my new ASP-script that makes it possible to view postcards from
a certain category. Say for example that you are interested
in hospitals (ehh, well...), now you can see all the postcards
with hospitals etc. For the moment I only have hospitals as
a category...but I will add other categories later on.
|November 5 @980,
||Last week I visited
a meeting for postcards collectors and dealers and bought 30
postcards that have now been added to my site. Feel free to

were in Russian. Michelle Yeoh helped me with that. Thanks!
| July 24 @068,
||I've added another
advertisement to the "Advertising" section.
|July 21, 1999
||I'm very embarassed
to notice that my postcard pages have been a mess with documents
in wrong frames, images that don't load etc. I belive I have
fixed the worst errors but I'll have to go through them all
to see if there is still something left...sorry for all this.
|July 4, 1999
||I have rebuilt
the postcard pages with ASP to simplify the task of adding new
postcards to the site. Now I just upload three separate files
per postcard and the ASP takes care of the rest. With this new
improvement I have added 88 new postcards!
|May 22, 1999
||I've finally added
an advertisement to the "Advertisements in the 50s"
page! Take a look! It's not very politically correct, and that's
why I chose it.
|May 21, 1999
||Added an opinion
|March 31, 1999
||Please take your
time to sign my guestbook!
|March 28, 1999
||I have updated
the site to use CSS (Cascading Style Sheets) for defining typefaces
and typeface sizes. This will ensure that the site displays
more correctly on Mac vs. PC etc. This will sadly make the site
to look bad on older browsers that are older than version 4.0.
Statistics show that over 80% of the visitors to my site uses
a browser that support CSS. New techniques should, if useful,
be used. Download a new browser today!
|March 26, 1999
||If you take a
look on the postcard pages you will notice that I added 8 new
postcards today, I especially like the bottom left on page 9.
Why not take the chance and send a nice postcard to a friend
tonight? Some days ago I added this new service!
|March 20, 1999

from this site!! Please take a look at this new service under
Postcards in the main menu!

the "Donated postcards" page. This is were the postcards YOU
send to me end up! So if you have a donation to make, please
|January 23, 1999
||I've managed to collect a whole
bunch of postcards since the last update. I put 19 of them in
the galleries today. As usual some of them are really cool.
OK, so now I have a total of 92 postcards.
I'm sad to say that the other sections haven't changed a bit...
|December 4, 1998
||The postcards keep rolling in...well,
accually I buy them and then I put them in the gallery. Anyway,
you can enjoy 12 new postcards today. Some really nice ones
this time (as always). Check out the second and fourth postcard
on gallery page 6! As of today I have 73 postcards for your

I can never find time for it... but some day when you least
expect it, it will be there.

postcard on gallery page 5 is almost my new favourite! Have
|November 22, 1998
||I did some cleaning up, but I bet
I messed something else up while doing it, that always happens
to me. Added a link page under "Other things". It seems like
you have to have one of those if you have a site...
|November 22, 1998
||The thing I tried to do two days
ago now hopefully works and you shouldn't notice anything. I've
added a new feature (somewhat hidden though...) that prevents
the user from viewing any of my pages out of its original frameset.
|November 20, 1998
||I tried to do a stupid thing with
all my files so the site was a mess. If you visited the site
around 9 pm GMT and got all sorts of weird messages and your
browser crashed, blame me! :-)

||Seven new postcards! I now have
50 postcards on display on my pages!
