Humor Sometimes, while browsing the net for news, I come accross things I just cannot not post. "Some enterprising Austrian Über-geeks [have created] a Telnet stream with, believe it or not, live ASCII footage of matches being played [at the World Cup Football]. Simply fire up a command prompt and type 'telnet ascii-wm.net 2006' and you'll find a live 'video' stream from 10 minutes before kick-off (or should that be boot-up?)." I also look forward to the Wimbledon version that resembles Pong.

Well, at least an entertaining way to watch the World Cup.
All you soccer-loving nerds, rejoice!


First of all it's not called soccer, but football. The entire world calls it football (fußball, le football,...) and it existed well before the US started calling their rugby ripoff "football".
It's like the US calling black people african-american; their not from Africa, their American. They're black. Just as white Americans aren't britain-american...
