This post may seem like a joke at first, but it's actually not. There are a few words that, especially when you work as a software developer, just have some negative connotation associated with them and should be avoided, especially when you are the bearer of bad news... hehe.
Do you ever wish that you could upload an image of some text, and have a program tell you what font the author used to write the text? Well, that's exactly what WhatDaFont is! Just upload an image and it will suggest some fonts for you!
Let me begin by saying that I don't like reading grammar mistakes. To me, reading blatant errors shows a lack of intelligence and casts doubt on the validity of the claims in the text. However, much like coding, I believe that writing should be an organic process where you plop your thoughts down in words and then refactor it later. With code, however, you have a compiler to check your work. For word processors like Microsoft Word or Google Docs there is no compiler to run the text through and reveal grammar mistakes with the same level of detail as a skilled proofreader (note to self- this could be good project). These programs love to tout how they have grammar checking engines, but it seems that at the moment human proofreading is the best method for catching and fixing the most errors.
