I'd got quite used to my os x machine (at least in all its non-terminal windows) being able to deal with chinese (and related) scripts. which was neat because i can read a little bit of that shit. and its the future, after all, so i'd expect that to work. This new debian install though, they're back to being funny squares indicating unknown characters. like they were on the last linux desktop machine i just trashed from 12y ago.
gonna party like its 1999.
