Now that I read linguaphiles regularly, it didn't take me long before I noticed one program I had forgotten to install on the new hard drive -- NJ Communicator! To enable me to read and write Chinese, Japanese, and Korean even in applications which normally don't support that.
Reading wasn't so important since Opera can display CJK (and I don't read much Usenet these days otherwise it comes in handy for sci.lang.japan and occasionally in sci.lang), but I wanted it for the input methods.
I had downloaded Microsoft's Global IMEs for all four CJK locales but that only works in MSIE. But now I can install NJ Communicator and input also in Opera.
