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.

Actually I think this is quite interesting. Back in the early days of computers and networked communication something like this could have been pretty handy, it's not very detailed, but at least people can get some idea of how the game is going.

But then, I'd be the kind of person to get together with friends and recreate the early days of networked computing, much like some history buffs like to reinact famous wars.
