in thread unpacking wmic command's unicode output

Thanks and ++ for the tip about :std or :locale. It's working in place as is, so I'll file this away for the next time I'm working on it. Again, it's a one-off script, but this is a good place to document the caveats for others who might be researching similar things.

#my sig used to say 'I humbly seek wisdom. '. Now it says:

use warnings;
I humbly seek wisdom.

    Quick note, it's not :std or :locale. They work in conjunction.
