In what will no doubt be an extremely popular move for many members of the bar, Courthouse Libraries BC has recently launched their Wi-fi pilot project in Vancouver (after an initial test with the North Vancouver and Victoria library branch locations).
Future locations will include the Kamloops and Kelowna branches, followed by Prince George and Nanaimo branches some time in March this year. A plan is also underway to provide access (to lawyers only) at 222 Main Street for the Vancouver criminal bar.
The Wi-fi service at most locations will allow both lawyers and library users with internet access. You can learn more via CLBC’s blog The Stream, and lawyers are encouraged to review the commentary around Wi-fi security on David Bilinsky’s Thoughtful Law Blog, which includes a detailed statement of CLBC’s thinking and commentary around the security and ethics issues involved with lawyer wifi use.

If you dabble in design to any degree then you know the frustration of font management. Using the traditional methods provided by either the Windows OS or Mac OS just don’t cut it when you start to acquire a plethora of fonts in all shapes and styles.
Linotype offer a fully functional version of FontExplorer X for the Mac platform and are coming out with a non-beta version for the PC shortly. The best part about it? The software is free! Thank you Linotype! I’ve been using the beta version for roughly a year now and must say the the interface and functionality of the software rival that of any font management software out there.
here’s the official blurb from Linotype:
FontExplorer® X sets a new standard for font management software. Linotype is pleased to announce the missing link to your font collection. With the new FontExplorer™ X, font management, font sorting, font shopping and font discovery are simple and fun! FontExplorer X gives computer users all the functionality they ever dreamed – easy to use with an elegant style.
What are you waiting for? Give the software a try: http://www.linotype.com/fontexplorerX
