Looking for samples of the new fonts

I am looking for some samples of the new font hacks. I don't like to keep installing and restarting to see what they look like. It seems to me that there was one when the first font hacks came out, but I can't remember where it was. Thanks for any help

I have some screengrabs of the first few font sets I uploaded, but that didn't really do justice to the real feeling on the screen, so I didn't post them.

Same thing for actual pictures of the screen taken with a digital camera.

So, yeah, the preview of the rendering done by your computer is almost more usefull than any of the pictures I came up with during my tests .
