Things you don't hear everyday:

swee-swee - local slang meaning nicely, beautifully.

What's "kern"?

kern v. To adjust space between (characters) in typeset text.

Does that make me more of a geek that I've known what kerning is for the past twelve years at least?

Ya a bit. And I can sit right by you on the geek bench because I also know what kern means. Blame it on a week spent at the university press doing layout and typesetting where I also lifted a copy of the Photoshop manual because they had like a gazillion copies just sitting in a corner.

Eiyer. So sad.
