Proper utf-8 from mIRC  
Yay, finally figured out how to get mIRC to type in Japanese properly so I can see it from irssi. If that doesn't make any sense to you, this probably won't interest you.

This is using the Sysreset mIRC package by the way.

view: font: ms mincho, script japanese, utf-8 display and encode
then tools: options, irc:messages, sjis uncheck, and check all of these:
multibyte display, multibyte editbox, utf-8 display, font linking, and parse ansi codes

In other news, I was playing with Windows because I got a 2.2GHz P4 for $60. The RAM is only 256 megs, and the hard drive is only 40 gigs, but those are easy enough to fix. I will upgrade it to Ubuntu once the hardware is upgraded. Yay Craigslist.

Hey, I just bought an old 1.1 GHz P3. :) And what really draw my attention to it was the 1 GB of ram (I'm putting one of the sticks on another computer that needs it badly).

It's amazing how cheap you can get a quake 3 capable computer these days. :D
