    Yeah that's the Star Wars acsii project that is pretty impressive, seriuosly most have taken a long time. And to tell you the truth, I find it more entertaining than Episode 1 and 2.

    Pretty cool that you can watch it in the terminal through telnet.

    has the same thing, but doing it from the Terminal is just cooler and feels geekier. Try the link above if telnet isn't working.
