I remember when my town went pitch black. I was out of town at the time of power loss, so when I drove in, everything was black. It's as if the town just disappeared. There were very few emergency lights. After I got home, I flicked the light switch out of habit and from out of the window I could see the entire sky turn a bright blue. It was the power plant, and someone obviously fucked up. After a few more intense power surges, I saw tens of emergency vehicles charge down the street. Power was eventually restored, though I don't know how.

Pretty scary shit right there.
This reminds me. This winter, after getting out of Guilty Gear club, when it was a little after midnight, we all just went out of the building we were in, to discover the sky was red, it was snowing, and an alarm was going off somewhere. Power wasn't out, but... It was Silent Hill-tastic.
Power going out is somewhat known for being scary, so I wrote it that way. Call it a writer taking a break for too long. Also watching Star Trek TNG, so that might have had a small influence on my post as well. =p

Courier New.

It's the only decent-looking fixed width font that comes default with most Windows installs.

omfg it's xkeeper in disguise

As for Press Start K being the best, yes it is. But two problems...

1. Set it for every font in your Appearance settings. Then launch Firefox and look at your bookmarks.
2. Doesn't come default with Windows.

While nice for nostalgia, I can't imagine using a bitmap font as part of the OS appearance settings. Especially since some of them probably wouldn't handle being downscaled well...

I only use that font in IRC and a couple of other apps. It does indeed look shitty when upscaled or downscaled. You have to upscale in multiples of its' 1:1 ratio original size for it to look good.
