    I've lugged all the televisions into the house to make one giant wall of video-game nerdiness (and to test performance of an eyefinity setup). It's been pretty good so far: I'm probably going to go buy some regular computer monitors and keep it permanently. For now the giant pixels on the tv screens made pixel fonts actually viable - normally I hate those.
    If you don't mind me asking, what font are you using for your cast bar text? I know it's a pixel font but it's one I particularly like but I sadly can't seem to find anywhere :<

    Avanti, or less likely Century Gothic.

    They're both very similar.

    The pixel font is called Seven 7. I'm 99% sure it's just a free font but I can't find the original designer's site to be sure. A google search will offer you a million different places you can download it. I don't want to just post it as a zip incase I'm wrong about it being free.

    Cowt guessed correct - it's century gothic - it comes bundled with many popular addons and (i think) Windows or Microsoft Office too.

It's ok now tho :> atleast just to play beta.
    Hey! I rlly like ur UI, its so clean.
    Would be nice if you could share it.

    That setup is fairly involved - it's got a one-off addon, a metric crapload of one-off lua, and some pretty hacked up pitbull code to make it all work.
    I thought about adding it as a trick to my weak auras series (because you can do that sort of thing with it) but I decided against it when I realized the topics are fairly complicated to explain to non-programmers.

    This time I'm keeping track of where I got fonts/audio/etc, I'm avoiding stuff I wouldn't be able to distribute (like expensive fonts) and planning ahead to have permission to distribute addons with my additions. If all that falls through, I've got git racking my changes to addons so I could just toss up some diffs and you could make my UI in 10 seconds.

    No promises yet, but I'm planning ahead for sharing my UI way more than I have in the past. Look for more closer to patch 5.0

    The new one or the old one? I can't give out the old one because it relies too much on shared media and somehow breaks if you turn off atlasloot_loader. I'll consider it for the new one, but it wouldn't really support different resolutions much, so you'd have to move some things yourself (mainly stuf) to install.

    Yeah I've setteled for the new one as well. More space between stuff made it alot less chaotic. As for the chat pixel font, it's the most readable one I've ever found. Just can't seem to go back to a non pixel perfect, solid, font anymore. And I normally try and use as few fonts as possible. ^^; A lowercase Hooge for chat, chat bubble and tooltip, a uppercase one* for unitframes, grid, dbm and nameplates, and prototype for raid warnings / special warnings and player names (non nameplate ones).

    *I may have edited the uppercase hooge a bit, no clue if thats allowed ;_;

    I see you're still in your default ui phase, eh :P

    and yeh. I've had a diablo funded race change AND namechange since you left. Cba with people giving me genital related nicknames man. Srs.

    - - - - - -

    Added some shiz (better buff/debuff timer text, matching floating combat text, ex/rep bar), swapped tictac with freebtip (managing to keep the look, 'cept for slightly thicker healthbar), leaving me with only stuf, grid and tellmewhen having resolution issues if I plan on uploading the ui. :>

    What addon do you use for the unit frames? Is it part of a total UI conversion mod?
