Watch Star Wars Episode IV From The Command Prompt

Who needs a bluray version of Star Wars when you can watch it in ASCII form! Thanks to the huge effort to Simon Jansen, you can watch most of the movie in ASCII right from your desktop (command prompt). A lot of you might have already seen this since it has been around for awhile (circa. 2000), but just stumbled across it myself (Can't believe I didn't hear about this before). To watch, follow the following steps :

  1. Go to Start -> type CMD and hit enter
  2. Enter the following into the black window that appears without the double quotes, "telnet towel.blinkenlights.nl"
  3. Sit back and enjoy

-- Update (10/22/2012) --
I had a few people mention an error message regarding an error with Telnet. If you receive an error message, make sure it is installed and enabled first. Install Telnet on Windows 7
