Looks really good! Was it a lengthy process? What tools did it require?

Yes, it looks good in large screen, but not in smaller screen.


I use otf2bdf and bdfresize (and optionally Fontforge) in Linux.
Not sure how to do that in Windows.

Lucida Console font has a bitmap version. :)



FYI, Lucida Console is used as BSOD font up to Windows 7 ;)
