Out of the blue my Steam started picking a random font I had in my user fonts dir: Virgil, the Excalidraw font.
That triggered me all sorts of emotions, ranging from laugh to total incredulity. I initially thought the root cause was a random derping from Valve but the Internet seemed quiet about it, so the unreasonable idea that it might have been my fault surfaced.
Who doesn’t love a good technology mystery story?
That’s pretty interesting, although I’d like to know a bit more about why steam or it’s dependencies are scanning the fonts. Does it build a database of installed fonts every time it runs?
