Contribution of Erik Thorne
For all fans of star wars, by connecting to telnet via Mac OS X Terminal an ASCII animation of Star Wars can be watched. It’s suspected that someone out there is extremely bored with his job or has too much spare time to spend on creating this ASCII animation (also named as 20th century text).
“This is the coolest thing ever”, claimed Erik Thorne himself.
Let’s try out this and see whether Erik is correct.
Connecting to Telnet
- Open Terminal
- Enter this line of command: telnet towel.blinkenlights.nl
- Execute the command line
- Take a cup of coffee and enjoy the movie
Luckily, I’ve managed to take two snaps of it before getting KOed by my boredom.
