No loans? you can get 50,000 for continuing your education with the Army
college fund!!

We pay you to go to school and learn a foreign language, it's tha
simple. In return you use your language skills in the Army for 4 years.

There are always slots for Russian, Korean, Arabic and Chinese. Check

I recently found a free bit of software that has been useful to me.
Working with non-Roman alphabets, it's often difficult to find the righ
character in a font, and the Character Map utility that comes with Windows
is hard to use.

Here's their description of the alternative:

"ExtendedCharacterMap is a replacement for the Windows Character Map
utility that provides a larger display of sample characters. The utility is
especially useful for viewing the pictures in a symbol or Dingbat font. The
keystroke name is displayed in the program's status bar. Any character or
series of characters can be quickly copied to the clipboard. Editors' Pick
at PC World. (portion taken from Softseek's review)"

filling the foreign-language requirement at New York University, and
directing people to a URL for more information.

That URL has now been changed to
