Re: font

I'd like to use Courier New as font for Cygwin, but the only choices
I've got are Lucida Console and Rasterschriftart. One solution is to use
PuTTY to connect via ssh to localhost, but I think this is a bit of
overkill. Is there another posiibility?

Yes. Don't use the cmd-based cygwin interface.
Use rxvt.
Install the rxvt package with setup, then use something like the following (I suggest creating a shortcut):

C:\cygwin\bin\rxvt.exe -sl 10000 -sr +sk -si -sw -fg Green -bg Black -e /bin/bash --login -i

Use the man pages and other docs to find out what the various options mean and how to change the font.



Spinning complacently in the darkness, covered and blinded by a blanket
of little lives, false security has lulled the madness of this world
into a slumber. Wake up! An eye is upon you, staring straight down and
keenly through, seeing all that you are and everything that you will
never be. Yes, an eye is upon you, an eye ready to blink. So face
forward, with arms wide open and mind reeling. Your future has
arrived... Are you ready to go?
