An in-office discussion of Java's Unicode support.
Jeremy: How many characters does Unicode support anyway?
Charles: It's effectively unlimited. Although because Java only supports two-byte characters, you can only use the first 65,000 or so natively.
(A short discussion of the difference between UCS-2 and UTF-16 encodings ensued)
Matt: So if you wanted to translate Confluence into Klingon, you'd be out of luck.
Charles: Yes, but Klingon isn't officially a part of Unicode, so you'd have to come up with your own encoding anyway.
Charles: I don't think I've ever felt more like a nerd than I did in that moment.
