I'm using the ubuntu fonts that were suggested in another thread. When I first tried it it didn't work. On a whim I tried it again and it did... Not sure why. I am using Gingerbread (2.3.6). I'm concerned that you can't get this to work on a Note 2. I almost got one of those. I'm seriously consideri...

I like the idea of a photo with a bunch of the stuff labeled. Or maybe even one of those "find the items in this picture" type photos where we have to find the stuff but stuff to find is listed in Greek.
