Building Letters 3

The previous post involved an odd natural disaster that was detrimental to hundreds of thousands of trees and the inconvenience of a few days without power. This was in no way on the scale and scope of major disasters like the Asian Tsunami of late 2004. The Tsunami has not been mentioned much lately. Relief efforts continue long after the cameras have gone home and people are still in need of assistance. The Building Letters 3 project was initiated soon after the tsunami struck but was somewhat delayed. Thanks to Filip Blazek of Typo.cz and a few other volunteers, it is now available. Your donation will help a good cause plus you will get a magazine and CD with 25 fonts donated by noted type designers.

Friday the 13th - The log has landed

Friday the 13th of October 2006.
Coinciding with the launch of the new P22 Web Log, the forces of nature have, with cruel irony, landed a massive log on the front lawn of P22 corporate headquarters in Buffalo New York. It's now 3 days later and P22 has power back on. 250,000 people including the majority of P22 residential quarters are still without power. Buffalo NY gets more than an unfair reputation for being snowy all the time. It is not. Summers are quite nice and Autumn is usually quite amazing, and generally not bad most winters. However every 5 years or so we get a storm that is beyond description. This one is massive and freakish. 2 feet of wet snow fallen on trees with full green leaves has devastated the beautiful old trees of this city. We are coping fine, building cozy fires and now getting out the chainsaws to dismantle the huge tree fallen on the P22 lawn. Don't expect the usual high level of customer service for a week or so.Images of the morning of Friday the 13th and the following day can be found here.
