But I have no knowlege about this font, hehehe I like it. ~70 chars/line in the example of 291 pixels so in a 640 will be about ~160 chars in one line (penden to confirm the minimum distance to be readable maybe 3 cm hehehe well now seriouly I was able to read the example in a 1280x768 10.6" inch screen so about 140 dpi in 40 cm distance with no movement (in a desk). I totally agree that this font is not for work but it can be used to make a text thumbnail in a icon of a text file or to and advanced text editor had a mosaic quickview of all open text files
Only dumb maths 160 columns x 60 lines = 4600 chars per screen (well maybe a lot of strange dots on a screen)
