Throwing another option into the mix...

LaTeX, which is frequently used for typesetting scientific papers, uses somewhere between one and two spaces after a period. I think the default is one and a third spaces.

I don't have anything to add to the conversation, but I keep seeing the thread subject go by in my RSS reader and think that people are talking about a game named "The Space Between Our Sentences". Clearly someone needs to run with it!

Unbelievable. I was just watching a rerun of Who Wants To Be A Millionaire and one question was about this exact topic, but it was a warning to NOT do the double-space after a period on your resume as you don't want that to trigger any age-discrimination in the hiring process. That means I'm old. I'm going to have to do what Hanon mentioned and teach myself to switch to one-space only.

It's about two neighboring prisoners who communicate through a wall.

Yeah, I get it, but what I don't get the weirdly misplaced anger that both I and MTW have at some point experienced due to our typing habits.
