Hi, everyone, Here's a biggie for you. :-) One of my clients is still fully dependent on legacy software that was custom made for them in 1993. (Don't ask. Please. Don't ask.) On the server side this means Novell Netware 4 and Btrieve, on the client side we're looking at either DOS and the Novell ODI stack (network interface driver, IPX protocol and Netware client requester) or Windows XP, the Netware client for XP and a DOSbox. Yes, I know. Ugh. But it's a long story and the reality is I have to suck it up and deal with it. They're at a point where this dinosaur simply cannot be upgr
So, I recently got a new computer from Dell and it was a Windows 7 (64 bit) computer. I purchased it to replace a computer we already have running, but there is one application that just isn't compatible. The program is called Power-Link.

I usually do my beginner Java Console Practice using Command Prompt as the compiler. But there is a problem, my Command Prompt can't read ASCII. It's because there is no Lucida Console font in the Command Prompt. Previously I had installed Japanese Language bar to my Laptop, but it makes strange symbol in my Words, so I decided to uninstall it. But the Japanese fonts doesn't get removed.

When I check the font, there's only 'raster font' and some jap
