I have been playing around with Chris Cannam's Codec font, when I noticed it looked rather similar to FF Quadraat Sans Mono, which I always wanted to use as a console font, at least since Octoploid made this awesome screenshot. But I never was confident with the outline font at low size, and I dislike the look of anti-aliasing.
I thus decided to redraw Codec with great influence of Quadraat and created a new, crisp 7x15 .bdf font called "sq", which you can see below. Since urxvt has problems with emboldening, I also made a bold version and manually revised the characters.
The font has the full latin1 range and I put it into the public domain.

Looks nice at first glance, though the 'f' is a bit too long for my taste.
If you can't sit by a cozy fire with your code in hand enjoying its simplicity and clarity, it needs more work. --Carlos Torres
