I just now saw your comment while metamoderating, that was an excellent comment. The two guys who modded you up did well.
A bitmap ASCII (CP437) font? Done. I can crank one out in an hour, tops
You're better than I ever was, then. Of course, my tools were primitive. That took me back to 1984 when I discovered that the video circuit in Radio Shack's MC10 was capable of NTSC standard format quality video (but only in 8 colors) and decided to write a graphics program for it. It was great fun.
Anyway, I decided to add text capabilities to the drawing program, and it took a hell of a lot longer than an hour. I mapped it out on graph paper first, which took hours in itself and probably an hour to input the codes.
Since I'd made it so you could print your artwork on it's plotter, I eventually made it into a word processor. In 20k running on a 6802 chip IIRC.
Primitive times, a year later when I was looking for work the guy who interviewed me bragged about his mainframe, which had a whopping two megabytes of memory. I didn't get the job.
I haven't done any "real" programming since they ditched NOMAD and dBase and switched to MS Access at work ten years ago. Yech, glad I retire next year.
