Alrighty Then
was my reply in this thread. It stands for whatever trips your trigger. I don't care.
By the way. We both are older in age than the OP. But younger in heart and mind.

Old I guess is when you make VGA-ROM.F08 your default terminal font. Because you can, and you remember how much easier things were when fonts were readable. It's kind of scary how BIG an 8x16 pixel font is on a 1080p display. And yet still able to fit 239 x 47 characters on a fullscreen xterm. 239x96 if you keep the original 8x8 on modern square-ish pixels. And so readable without having to best guess if something is an I, l, |, :, ;, !, or 1.
