I had to recently wipe out my Windows Vista and re-install it with XP because it became too virus infested and completely failed. Now I am looking into how I can prevent these issues. I love to download fonts, but I don't exactly want to pay $20 for them. I used to use DaFont.com and I loved it, but now I've been looking at reviews and such to make sure. There's only good reviews, but I can't be sure those are legit. I know Yahoo! Answers isn't exactly the Library of Congress when it comes to this stuff but I would really appreciate a second opinion. **So what I'm asking is whether or not DaFont.com is virus free? Also, is 1001FreeFonts.com virus safe as well? Thank you.** [url=http://gordoarsnaui.com]santoramaa[/url]

So in all strong if anything is going to turn up in 2012 there is solitary the slimmest feasibility that the world hand down have ended first it happens.

Today, I went to the beachfront with my children.
I found a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and
said "You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear." She put
the shell to her ear and screamed. There was a hermit crab inside and
it pinched her ear. She never wants to go back!
LoL I know this is totally off topic but I had to tell someone!
