2013 for old programmers who think zeros should have a line through them by zaaphod Dec 26, 2012

Description

Remember when all computers had lines through the zeros?? Ah the good old days of programming for DOS computers. What can I say, numbers just don't look right if the zeros don't have lines through them.

Love this..

How did you get the "colorful" version? Thinner layers in different colors glued together?

wow, that does take me back!
Yes I had lines thru Zeros, and spaces were lowercase b's with slashes thru them as well.

beautifully done!

I'm going to 3d print a lawn so I can tell the kids to get off it.

A little random, but funny as hell. Here you, start printing! http://www.thingiverse.com/thi...

Yep, if it doesn't have a line, it's an "O", not a zero.

I can't stand fonts that just use a line for a lowercase L as well as an uppercase I.... such as the font in this box for example... and the default windows font as well... I l I l I l what is it?? not to mention trying to use it for a number 1 as well.. it's just hard to read. I can see using the same silly line on an old typewriter where it would have taken a lot more mechanics to get the other symbols, but there's never been a reason on computers. if DOS could use something other than just a line for l's and I's on a monochrome monitor, why can't wondows 8?
