in thread UTF8 Validity

Just try to decode something as UTF-8. If that fails, fall back to something else.

For example:

$foo = eval { decode("UTF-8", $foo, Encode::FB_CROAK) } || decode("CP1252", $foo);

[cavac]: Ok, thanks for the information
[choroba]: Yes, tried now. Login didn't show the login window at all, timed out, but worked for the second time instantly.
[choroba]: Trying the daemon log...
[choroba]: It seems very slow. But the internet is weird here in Vietnam...
[choroba]: again, stopping it and trying for the second time fixed the problem
