    So, my Christmas was spent re-formatting my computer who decided to be a jerk and BSOD me. The most annoying thing I am finding thus far is I hadn't saved all my fonts in one place, and I can't remember the names of some of my former go-to fonts.

    So I thought we could list some of our favorites and link to them if they were free?

    MORE MORE MORE.

    Can I just say this thread is amazing? I recently had my computer crash and I lost all my gorgeous fonts. I'm trying to build back up and this is soooo helpful. Everyone should share more!

    FONTS ARE MY LIFE.
    I'm kidding, but only slightly.
    In doing graphics for ~6 years, I've accumulated about 2,200 fonts

    Good Freeware Font Packs

    http://www.smashingmagazine.com/2008/11/24/15-beautiful-high-quality-free-fonts/

    Once upon a time, I made a pack with about 600 fonts in it, but I'll have to find it and rehost it, since Megaupload is dead. I'll edit this post if/when I get around to that.

    My favorite font sites

    COMIC SANS.

    Comic sans for everything!

    (Tyopgraphy inside joke : The fastest way to be discredited as trivial and n00bish is to use Comic Sans, because of it's chronic overuse)

    I LOVE THIS THREAD! :D And I adore League of Moveable Type and Lost Type Co-op. Just, ugh, such beautiful sites with beautiful fonts. :) Everyone needs to go check them out if they haven't already. All the fonts are so amazing!

    News Cycle is a great font for headers and such in my opinion. It looks very humble as simply a font for writing (and actually I don't use it for normal writing, because it's a little too much on the narrow side to be easy on the eyes in paragraph form), but when it's in all caps in bigger sizes, it looks amazing. Very classy, simple, modern and elegant, and unexpectedly atmospheric too. It kind of reminds me of iconic powerful women, I don't know why, but it does.
    Matchbook is interesting, kind of retro but with a modern twist.
    St. Marie and Chunk Five are crisp slab fonts.
    Blanch is along similar lines to Ostrich Sans.
    Dock 11 delivers a lot of impact while still being very tight and clean.
    Antechamber BAM. Just. BAM. <3 I could hug this font all day long!
    Violent Elegance is no longer free but it's wonderful.

    Ooh, a thread for typophiles. This is my new favorite corner of the site! I have over one thousand, legally acquired or free fonts on my computer at this moment. I cannot resist. I dabble too much in advertising and image editing and web design to not love me some fonts.

    That said, one of my new favorites is Droid Serif. It's simple, it's clear, it's precise, and it looks damned lovely on a website. Yes, yes, yes, I know that it's a serif and I usually advocate non serifs, but I tend to utilize fairly large font sizes. That compensates!

    If you're ever looking for new fonts, I'd highly recommend Font Squirrel. There are many fonts there and they're all available for free commercial use. I know that with the ease of acquiring things on the Internet a lot of people aren't necessarily concerned with copyright infringement (at least, until their work product is stolen!), but I make an effort to have right on my side.
