Star Wars on the Terminal

In Uncategorized on March 1, 2009 at 20:14

So, like the geek you are, you spend most of your time on the Terminal, hacking away at your code. Now and again, you feel the urge to watch a movie. But you have to fire up a whole new app for that! Fear not! For now, you can watch a movie from your beloved command line!

Just telnet to towel.blinkenlights.nl, and enjoy Star Wars IV: A New Hope in ASCII goodness! Thats right, the entire movie is rendered in ASCII text.

The first one to sit through the entire text movie wins the “Best Geek” award 😐

PS. For all you non-geeks out there:

1. What are you doing on this blog?

2. Copy and paste the following “code” into your Terminal/Command Line:
