Christmas Disaster / Chinese

Oh, I am SO not ready for Christmas. What a disaster but between servers that won’t quit dying, tree limbs coming through the roof, etc, this one’s more of a disaster than usual.

One nice thing, I finally got the ability to compose and display 中文 on this computer. I’m curious if it will display alright on the web when blogged.

It didn’t initially but changing the character encoding setting to from ISO9660 or whatever it was to Unicode fixed that, probably at the expense of making the English text take more space.

However, 中文 doesn’t work at all in the Unix shell. I know they’ve got a Chinese distribution of Linux out called Red Flag Linux. I am curious how they addressed this issue.
