Ornotermessdschulze: dont 4x6 font look more like random dots than letters? :P18:11
uncloudedOrnotermes: 4x6 fonts look pretty awful in black&white, especially on the NanoNote's LCD with its pixels in a delta arrangement but there are things you can do with SubLCD techniques to make fonts more readable on the NanoNote's display: http://en.qi-hardware.com/wiki/Ben_NanoNote_fonts18:38
Ornotermesi think i prefer 6x11, but 5x8 could be useful if one really need that18:43
Ornotermesfor a serial terminal or something like that18:44
uncloudedOrnotermes: there's a 6x10 font on that page that looks heaps better than a black&white 6x11 font18:45
uncloudedOrnotermes: the screenshots don't really do it justice but even my poor photos show the 32-bit color fonts looking better18:50
Ornotermesunclouded: but 32bit color fonts doesn't support colored text right?18:57
uncloudedOrnotermes: that's right.  it's like having a grayscale terminal18:58
Ornotermesis it possible to use different fonts in different ttys?19:04
uncloudedOrnotermes: yes, definitely20:05
