I honestly think I would class searching for and downloading free fonts a "high risk" activity. NOT because there's anything wrong with the font files themselves (once you finally download them) but just because most of the sites that host them are pure e-COVID, filled to the gills with exactly the kind of phony-download-button malware ads that like to trap casual users and older people; and the few relatively "good" sites there are aren't SO well-known and universally recognized that a person who only downloads fonts like once or twice a decade is going to know them and be able to tell them apart from the two dozen other e-COVID sites deliberately using a variation of their name.
Google fonts are free no?

Lol, radio waves in water, in a pipe, underground. I imagine that kind of transmission power setting someone’s head on fire the minute they were inserted in the ears.

The Bluetooth protocol communicates using radio waves that can be effectively read within, oh what's the max, thirty feet or so. But it does make sense that the water company spaces readers down every twenty-five feet of piping in the sewer routes. Or maybe it doesn't.

I wonder about selling floating antennae for Bluetooth in swimming pools. Since 2.4 GHz isn't going to penetrate more than a few centimeters.
