This has been around for a very long time. Watched it several years ago, but there may be some people out there who haven't seen it yet. Hell, back in the day telnet had some of the only online multi-player games available. I remember playing MUDS, MOOS and MUSHes long before some of the people here were even born.

Don't forget this trick. Haven't tried it in a while and I'm not sure if it still works.

EDIT: Just tried it, needs PowerPC to run :(

"Watch QuickTime movies in the Terminal
Oct 21, '02 08:56:03AM • Contributed by: Anonymous
Believe it or not, you can actually view a QuickTime movie in the Terminal, in ascii form. Get the binary from Apple's Developer Pages:ASCII Movie Player. After downloading, just make sure the file is either in a directory on your path, or run it from the download directory (with a "./" in front), and type ASCIIMoviePlayer some_movie.mov.

Suggestion - use a movie that is not too large, or reduce your terminal font very small. I can watch the Two Towers trailer on my 800x600 screen with 6 pt Courier in the Terminal.

It's all pretty useless, but neat nonetheless."

That was fun. I've never seen it before either.
