    Okay it's not high definition, it's a silent film but it needs almost no system ressources.

    1. Open Terminal

    2. Type there telnet towel.blinkenlights.nl

    3. Wait a minute and enjoy the show!

    thats awesome :D

    I assume it's streaming from the internet, yes? If it isn't, I might watch it on the train. It doesn't kill the battery at all :cool:

    That's correct. In the simplest terms, you're opening a "remote desktop" connection to a computer that's playing the movie.

    Whoa. I first found out about this about 3 years ago. It's not done yet?

    I didn't even know it was incomplete, because I never bothered to watch the whole thing.
