Telnet Star Wars

This might be the most retrogeekcool thing ever. Find yourself an ol’ reliable terminal program, and telnet over to to watch Star Wars, Episode IV (that’s the first one for the non-nerds) in exciting, breathtaking, totally silent TextaVision.

For the slightly less geek-inclined, you may also watch the show at the Asciimation headquarters.


I would like to thank you for your link to ASCII Star Wars. I have always wanted to experience such a thing, and now thanks to YOU I have. I am really grateful. Is there anything I can do to thank you?

In Earshot

I only really read it for Canucks coverage, but even still it’s nice that The Vancouver Sun finally redesigned its hideously awful website to look like it was designed this century.
