Does anybody know of an Old Church Slavonic font for a HP LaserJet and/or
Apple Laserwriter printer, preferably for use on a PC with WordPerfect?

Perhaps some HUMANISTS know of studies into the experience folks have
had with Shareware. The theory is that there is an incentive (not
unlike the incentives for scholarly publishing) in producing useful
programs for one's peers. The incentive, of course, is the recognition
given you by your peers. In the context of electronic information
dissemination and networks, shareware programs seem to be developed and
distributed within that perspective.

Also as with scholarly publishing, however, filthy lucre sometimes
raises its ugly head. In the case of shareware programs, its
manifestation is in the less-than-subtle suggestions that if a program
is useful, you are under pain of ostracism and immoral behavior if you
do not submit the requested few dollars in return for using a given

I'm curious if anyone has information about surveys of any kind, giving
an indication of how the population at large responds to such veiled
altruism. Is the general experience that people do, in fact, pay when
there is no obligation to do so? Or are we as a society, more selfish?
