While thinking about fonts, I thought this may prove very useful. (btw apologies for typos it's nearly 1 am). Typography software is usually very expensive and designing fonts the traditional way takes a lot of time, know how and practice. However, there is now fontshop.com that allows you to design your own useable truetype font for free; and what's even better they make it easy as... instead of needing to know about kerning, glyphs and the like they just allow you to use several different block shapes to compose your letters. When you're done, name it, save it and install it on your computer. You can even share them with other people. Unlike free font sites these are fine for commercial use as you have designed it yourself.
Anyhow hope someone finds this useful or fun
