Agree 100% on the font issue pointed out here. Also annoyed by not seeing people's IM status .... 
 
Hey, Google+, we have to talk.

I don't mind the new layout so much, especially since it at least partially fixes the whole #whitespace  issue you had.

But I really really mind bad font rendering. And you've done something absolutely horrible to the font you use. And I can't seem to find the setting to fix it.

It looks like you are using a WOFF Roboto font. Which isn't horrible in theory, because the Roboto font isn't necessarily ugly. But whatever you are doing to render it should be illegal and counted as a crime against humanity.

Seriously, that's some nasty sh*t. This is the fuzziest font I have ever seen.

Maybe it's the WOFF rasterizer in Chrome that could suck dead baby donkeys through a straw?

Maybe it's that you scale the font size to be "resolution independent". Maybe you tested it on your 1366x768 laptops, and your 1920x1080 desktops, and then said "Screw it, that's good enough".

In fact, maybe you said "Hey, we want to make it equally blurry for everybody, and if you have the extra pixels, we'll make sure to align things on a half-pixel boundary just so that you won't get a better-looking font".

I don't know what it is. But it's bad.

Your WOFF fonts render pretty much sub-optimally, with the stems of the letters aligned at half-pixels to absolutely maximize the fuzziness from anti-aliasing. There's a black pixel core stem, and there are basically 50% gray pixels on both sides of it.

Have you ever heard of font hinting? 

Please give me my good fonts back. Don't scale things until they are a fuzzy mess. Ok? Give me a font with proper hinting, or give me the option to at least change the font and font size.

It's not me. It's you.

Stood in line for the ski service shop TWICE for twenty minutes while the staff let other people cut the line and act like children. Was told over the phone and in person that they could accommodate my repair - NP at all - but when I actually got there all they did was try to up sell me things I didn't need and refused to fix my snowboard (needed a basic, easy, base grind). All in all thoroughly done with SB - last board I serviced there was ruined by their "tech" BTW - $500 board repaired straight into the trash....

Called ahead and talked to a guy about snowboard service and was told to come in down, no problem at all. Arrived at the store and was told they are backed up for the next 20days of service - wtf kind of way is this to treat paid members ?! Not the first time we get really bad service at this place and the drive down today was completely unnecessary. Done with REI...

Probably the least professionally run stage in the bay area - not going back unless whatever band is playing literally don't play elsewhere. PS. Whatever came out of their tap wasn't beer (clean the damn lines if you're selling beer!)

There's a very good reason this place has a line going around the corner of the block. Their BLTs are well worth the wait :)

This HOA is self serving, privacy invading and discriminatory against renters (in violation of FHA). They are wholly unfit to perform the duties enumerated in their own rules and deviate from stated policy at just about every avenue to pursue their own discriminatory agendas. Beware and bring recording equipment to any interactions to document their missteps if you care about the outcomes.

Great place for a short walk in nature that's still inside the city!
