Unicode

I finally got around to looking at a contribution I received a while back to merge the misc-fonts Unicode characters into the 10x20 Neep font I use as an X screen font. Nice. I'm going to install it on my desktop system for testing, and that eliminates the reason why I hadn't switched everything over to Unicode yet. So tomorrow, I switch locales finally to en_US.UTF-8 (although still with LC_COLLATE set to C, since the en_US collation is not at all what I want), change my fonts for everything, change my less configuration to default to UTF-8, and start being able to look at Debian changelog files in less without seeing them mangled.

I've been meaning to do this for eons. It's really nice to have finally gotten around to doing it.

Other than that, very busy, still not writing many reviews, but getting lots of things done. I've finally dug through the huge backlog of to-do entries that I had when I started with this new time management system, and I now only have a couple of things already written in for tomorrow. That means I can move into phase two and start pulling things out of my trackers to do each morning, but probably not until I've finished cleaning out all of my e-mail folders.
