Font, fonts, fonts

Currently I try to do some front end designing and am messing around with fonts. These two sites are very helpful:

The first describes the techniques currently available for embedding fonts (so you get a 1:1 image of any font you want on any browser)

The second describes which fonts are browser safe and has example screen prints of these fonts being used in different browser on different platforms:

Writing Scrum user stories

At the ScrumMaster course I attended we spent some time on how to write user stories and what can go wrong when your are writing them. An important rule is that the user story should always end with a ‘so that…’ . By adding a ‘ so that ‘ you are forced to write a clear story.

However, there is the risk of ending up in a ‘ cause and effect ‘ trap. This article gives some nice pointers on how to avoid that.
