But don't worry too much about it. Primarily I'd like to get some more opinions - Brian, Min, Evan, you've all weighed in on logos previously - what do you think of the different fonts Klonuo has tried?

I like Droid Sans Mono. Quicksend is too dainty, and I don't like how low the y's are compared to the brackets in Inconsolata and Anonymous Pro. I believe Fernando made a similar comment about the placement of the 'y'.
