TIP: Ever get those strange characters in your console ?

Ever get those strange looking little buggers in your console after installing Arch and firing up the terminal ?
Something like this –
[crouse@archie ~]$ pstree
init─┬─6*[agetty]
├─crond
├─httpd───11*[httpd]
├─mysqld_safe───mysqld───9*[{mysqld}]
├─sshd─┬─sshd───sshd───bash───su───bash
│ └─sshd───sshd───bash───pstree
├─syslog-ng───syslog-ng
├─udevd───udevd
└─vmtoolsd

Simply add the following to your .bashrc and close your terminal window and open it up again, or source the .bashrc file again.
export LC_ALL=C

[crouse@archie ~]$ pstree
init-+-6*[agetty]
|-crond
|-httpd---11*[httpd]
|-mysqld_safe---mysqld---9*[{mysqld}]
|-sshd-+-sshd---sshd---bash---su---bash
| `-sshd---sshd---bash---pstree
|-syslog-ng---syslog-ng
|-udevd---udevd
`-vmtoolsd
[crouse@archie ~]$
