I use XP mainly for writing articles columns funnmystories & cartoonesque gags, so I guess my processors lead a relatively easy if not boring life. Yet I was warned that stacking more than 800 fonts into Windows may cause my computer go china syndrom or something like that. I hastily trimmed back to 700 and stored 500 fonts onto cdrom. To obtain an 'archive' font I now have to park the whole lot in a temp map, copy the desired font to the Windows fontmap, and delete again after use. Is there an easier way?

re fonts

Well, there were all those nice sites beckoning me to come in and take my pick. Hope I didn't do something that makes uncle Bill mad?

your friend has a point - all your fonts are loaded into memory & can effect performance if you have to many

to avoid a possible crash
install more RAM if possible
& increase the size of your pagefile
to min 3 x RAM / max 5 x RAM

Carried out your PageFile instructions, it works, see my XP smiling from ear to ear now

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
