This is something that only geeks would do, re-create a Star Wars movie in ascii-arts. Yep, that’s right, you can watch Star Wars IV: A New Hope in ascii. I just got this from LifeHacker. The original article is from The Register which is surprisingly quite ‘old’, posted on December 2001.
You can watch it from http://www.asciimation.co.nz/. Or if you want to you can watch it from … telnet :). Just type this
Unfortunately the movie is still not complete. The last update is at April 18 2006. Anyone interested to finish it :D?
