I didn't realise the name would cause such a fuss... :O

I think I might go with Peach's suggestion though...and rename it after a famous bug

That is one snazzy font, although the middle of the 5 seems too thick compared to the other numbers.

As for a name, I would go for something related to the will-o'-wisp, as it kinda reminds me of one. (Although that's only because these things remind me of an object from the freeware game Seiklus but that's too convoluted of a connection methinks)

If you want to go for a bad pun, you could call it the ignis fontuus (see Wikipedia)

Great font skamo!
@peach, I do not agree but flame font isn't a good name either... hmmm.. Devil font? nope. I guess no name can describe this ;)

nice typeface skamocore! but I think this has to be called "bug-font" :)

That is a valid point, but I think a font like this would mainly be used for headings (possibly at 2x or more), therefore it wouldn't be too much of a problem. A font with this amount amount of spacing would only really start being a pain if it was used for more than a few words.

Nice but don't the letters just get too far apart from each other to be easily readable as words?
