Now that I've been reading this amazing site for about a year I'm finally making my first (official) post.

I am a graphic designer from Helsinki, Finland, and increasingly enthusiastic about type.

Here is something that suprised me today:

Aoccdrnig to a rscheearch at an Elingsh uinervtisy, it deosn't mttaer in waht oredr the ltteers in a wrod are, the olny iprmoetnt tihng is taht the frist and lsat ltteer is at the rghit pclae. The rset can be a toatl mses and you can sitll raed it wouthit porbelm. Tihs is bcuseae we do not raed ervey lteter by it slef but the wrod as a wlohe.

ha ha.

Well, Timo, welcome. I guess even though you have been reading the board for over a year you did not read it this week.

There is a huge thread on this called something like, "Raed This" or something close.

Regardless, welcome!

In fact, I realized it just after my post, doh... And had I thought my first post would start a long thread. stupid me.
