A recreation of the font used on the early CRT terminals from IBM, based on this source by Marcin Wichary.

I find there is a particular charm in the crudeness of some solutions compared to subsequent iterations or other 5x7 pixel fonts (see, for example, the numerals and |C|U|Y|).

I reproduced only the characters shown in the aforelinked image, placing them in what I considered to be the appropriate Unicode place.

I tried to look for some more glyphs (comma anyone?) but failed to find reliable sources.

I'm with Goatmeal, it's a great font to code. And very good sample with the words of HAL9000.
