hmmmmm,...
« on: Feb 22, 2016, 10:07 »
so, as I read through this:

http://pbadupws.nrc.gov/docs/ML1525/ML15251A587.pdf

what I intriguingly notice is that October 22, 2015 appears to be entered using a Courier font with an old school mechanical typewriter, or perhaps a daisy wheel selectric,....

any insights on this from the folks who may know?!?!?!?!?! :-\

been there, dun that,... the doormat to hell does not read "welcome", the doormat to hell reads "it's just business"

okay, I'll make it simple,... :P

is the issue date typed with a typewriter whilst the rest of the license is word processed through a printer?

Nah - the kerning is too tight for a typewriter.  Even an IBM Selectric, which will automatically adjust the kerning, couldn't type like that.  Also, the typeface isn't quite right for Courier.

   It looked like you were questioning its authenticity because of seeming inconsistency. Official documents are released in PDF that blurs the type and the font can be anything the processor has in its library for whatever reason.

   You must be very bored or on your second bottle of wine to ask this question.   :P

actually GLW cool that you pay attention to details like that.  sometimes they really matter.  usually not, but it is the sometimes that count.  I have a couple of tales in the Nuclear Industry where those details that don't usually matter mattered big time.  Not telling though.
