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 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.

I think type in and it will orient you to FIFA's site. You can check timings there! And the amazing thing that people are ignoring I that how are they converting the live game to ASCII?! Is there a poor programmer typing the game as fast as he can?!!
