Star Wars geeks rejoice! It might seem like old news to some, yet finding it brightened my day a tad more.

If you are mildly proficient with a terminal (even the Windows Command Prompt!), chance is you can watch Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope all made of ASCII art!

It’s a tremendous job by Simon Jansen ( http://www.asciimation.co.nz ) ported to Telnet (with some Terminal tricks) by Mike Edwards ([email protected] ) and Sten Spans ( http://blinkenlights.nl ).

To enjoy the movie, just open a new terminal window and type:
telnet towel.blinkenlights.nl
