Alan wants your stamps and coins

Alan has revived his blog after some period of inactivity. Lately, he's really been into collecting stamps and coins from various countries. He's gotten some from tor (Swedish), rillian (Canadian and euro), and Igor Melichev (Russian), but I figured the Advogato crew could help him out with lots more exotic countries.

He'd also like to get mail about stamps and coins, N64 games, or how he puts up with having such a crazy dad - send 'em to alan dot levien at gmail dot com.


I've been playing with my curve editor, tracing characters from old ATF fonts and so on. It's quite fun, and it seems to be a lot faster to get good curves drawn than Bezier-based editors.

There's always just one more feature I want to add before doing a release, but at the same time I want people to play with it, so I've put up a new code escape. You'll just need a Linux/Unix/Fink system with Gtk+ and libart installed. I'm always pleased to get feedback on it.
