OmniTI has been working with Clearleft for a while now on Fontdeck. The super Greg Chiasson has been pushing our beta live and I've been provisioning machines and setting up infrastructure just so you can read this web page in a nice sexy font... Nice... Sexy.
And yes, of course, fontdeck is powered by our friends: Apache, PostgreSQL, OpenSolaris, a bit of Linux here and there, a sprinkling of both asymmetric and symmetric cryptography and an ancient dialect of computer-speak called Perl.
