laptop + cleartype + rainlendar = blurry 7 Years, 9 Months ago  
I installed Rainlendar v2.0 (b25) on my laptop, with cleartype turned off - my Rainlendar looks just like the screenshots on the main page of Rainlendar.com - Readable. But when I turn cleartype on, it makes my rainlendar blurry and difficult to read. Kind of strange.. all the other text in WindowsXP looks better with cleartype turned on - Rainlendar looks waaay worse!
I can't figure out whats going on or why. Does anybody have an idea what the deal is?

The problem is that Windows isn't able to draw the text onto a 32-bit surface so I have to do the drawing of the alpha mask and the actual text separately. This will change all pixels to the destination color and the text will look blurry. I'll have to see if it's possible to disable the cleartype in Rainlendar.

If you can't disable cleartype, the simplest way would be for us to change the fonts and font sizes ourselves to suit our preference. How do we change the font and their size?

You would have to edit the skin. The fonts are defined in the elements.xml file (unzip the skin).
