Powershell 4.0 hates Lucida Console and switches to raster fonts

Posted by jpluimers on 2016/07/25

PowerShell 4.0 is madly in love with

PowerShell 4.0 is madly in love with “English (United States)”

A long time ago I started writing up my blog post like this in March 2015 when I bumped into this the first time when upgrading from PowerShell 2 to PowerShell 4:

It seems there is no real workaround:

Good and not so good news: after reading the below linked posts, this is what works:

  • PowerShell 4 and up works fine with any Lucida Console size (including 12) and boldness
    • only when the “Language for non-Unicode programs” is set to “English (United States)”.
  • PowerShell 4 works fine with Consolas on any size and boldness
    • for any “Language for non-Unicode programs”

So if you’re like me and switch between “Dutch (Netherlands)” and “English (Ireland)” a lot (both use the EURO as currency, but have distinct enough other locale settings to cover a lot of European stuff) then you need to get used to the Consolas font.

tls – How can I verify that SSLv3 protocol is disabled? – Information Security Stack Exchange

Posted by jpluimers on 2016/07/25

Interesting:

just for completeness:

testssl.sh is a nice, console-based tool to check ssl-setups of any ssl/ts – enabled servers, in oposite to ssllabs

It helped me solving this:

Host: http://www.beginend.net

Reason: error:14094410:SSL routines:SSL3_READ_BYTES:sslv3 alert handshake failure

Within the testssl.sh directory, you can use this to test with many cyphers:

OPENSSL=./openssl-bins/openssl-1.0.2-chacha.pm/openssl32-1.0.2pm-krb5.chacha+poly ./testssl.sh http://www.example.com
