The grading period has ended, and it’s time to find out who got the high scores and who’s failing the class.

I think we’re stretching what’s acceptable to the limits. But they do feel similar.” – Fast Company

A default font should be something you don’t notice and don’t feel the need to change unless you want something specific. Of course the switch from Times New Roman back ...
