Aacii art "text" version of Star Wars

I received this link from a Quora discussion. It plays an ascii art “text” animation of Star Wars. Pretty clever. Issue the following command from a command prompt in Linux. It would probably work with OS X or Windows as well but I haven’t tried it.

nc towel.blinkenlights.nl 23

(or for telnet if you have it installed.)

telnet towel.blinkenlights.nl


Wooah. That’s a blast from the past! I remember seeing that back in the late 90s. It got passed around on our IRC channels a lot.
