TelnetStarWars1A little fun for my final post for the day.  Highlighted to me by Roy Schestowitz from Boycott Novell (I believe due to him knowing I am a Star Wars fan) here is Star Wars IV – A New Hope in ASCII.  If anyone ever says to me that I have too much time on my hands, I think I will link them to this as I don’t think I’ve seen a better example!   Having said that its a great effort and kudos to the creator for putting the work in!

Simply call up your terminal and type:

telnet towel.blinkenlights.nl

Star Wars IV - A new hope.  I shouldn't think even the MPAA will have a problem with this creative rendition of an all time classic.....then again...after recent allegations against IP infringement, maybe they will?

and  bring back those happy memories of probably the best SCI-FI movie ever released.

I also have to thank the site: http://www.junauza.com/2009/08/watch-star-wars-ascii-animation-via.html who Roy linked me to,  a great find!  I may well start a theme here and see how many other movies have been converted into ASCII format.

A nostalgic way for me to end the day and a reminder to me that there are some people even more fanatical about Star Wars than myself…. a worrying thought!

See you all tomorrow.
