After many installations, instructions on using Unicode, and researching Unicode symbols, my computer system is super-duper-up-to-date AND I CAN TYPE IN ANGLO-SAXON!!!!

HAHAHAA!

Which means I can now type up my palaeography homework AND MORE IMPORTANTLY I WILL NOT HAVE TO DRAW IN ALL THE EXTRA LETTERS FOR THE MIDDLE ENGLISH PORTIONS OF MY THESIS.

And now, if I want to accomplish anything during spring break, I should probably start editing.

Does anyone reading this know how to use Junicode? I need to be able to type in Anglo-Saxon, and I can figure out the ash, but I cannot for the life of me find the wyn or the thorn. And the directions make no sense whatsoever, and they're not even proper directions.

...

This situation led to me yelling that THIS IS WHY ANGLO-SAXON DIED OUT! I CAN'T TYPE IN IT! THIS IS WHY IT IS A DEAD LANGUAGE. (disregarding the fact that it evolved into Modern English. Eventually).

And then my roommate (who is an Anglo-Saxonist, but doesn't know how to type it - this is for palaeography, our professor told us we should download this font, it's brilliant, you can use for transcription, etc. etc. etc.) decided to yell back that NO, THIS IS THE BLASTED NORMANS' FAULT. IF THEY HAD STAYED IN FRANCE, THINGS WOULD BE MUCH BETTER! AND CLEARLY THIS IS ONE MORE EXAMPLE OF NORMAN OPPRESSION AND THEIR NON-ANGLO-SAXON COMPATIBLE COMPUTER SYSTEMS.

I'm going to have to resort to using a pencil and paper for my homework, oh the horror.

mood: Photobucket blasted normans.
