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.

That's hmm...

I believe this is... how should I put it...?

But Wimbledon in Pong-like ascii-version? Oh yeah ;)

BTW: Due to the addictive element in Pong you should probably add a disclaimer to the summary. Like this: "I also look forward to the Wimbledon version that resembles Pong. - BEWARE: Pong is highly addictive.
