Ok, this is pretty crazy stuff.  I admit, I didn’t come anywhere near watching the whole thing, but it was pretty cool to see someone took the time to do something pretty creative like this…

telnet:towel.blinkenlights.nl

(Yeah, clicking the link above only works for Windows folks…all others will need to open a Telnet session and type it in manually)

everybody has something they love, as long as they are devoted to it and it was fun for them why would you make bad comments?

The really talented guy who did this is Simon Jansen.

I wasn't aware that cartoons like these can be made using simple letters, symbols and numbers.

"get a life" comment says nothing about the artist and everything about the person who made that comment. I suspect he/she needs one him/herself.

VERY cool. Just like the old BBS days. I find it interesting that some folks on here say they have never seen anything so creative, etc. Back in the days of the BBS you'd be amazed at the artwork people came up with using only ascii.

This is epic. It's nice to see people still leaving space for stuff like this in the caves of the internet. Sadly, they didn't use the greatest potential of ASCII characters.

dyne.org has the hasciicam project where you can stream video in ASCII, and VLC player has the option to view videos in colored ASCII.

Uh.. I think its funny the amount of people spamming this with "Get a life." Take a look in the mirror, and follow your own damned advice.

Great job. (:

For anyone who is haveing problems veiwing it do the folowing:

Click Start>Run
Type cmd then hit enter
in the window that pops up type "telnet towel.blinkenlights.nl"
without the quotations
if it still does not work make sure your 23port is open.
