Wold Cup telnet fun

I’ve just learned that some people are using the old and aged telnet application for new uses:

_,...,_ ) a/]QQb
.'@/~~~\@'. jQQba
//~~\___/~~\\ _, .?QQ#[ _
|@\__/@@@\__/@| ]m _.7 "asLaas_a/
|@/ \@@@/ \@| , ,\J#L -!4Wba
\\__/~~~\__// [aL[ \ \jmm jP
'.@\___/@.' ,b#'"[ \jmmmmm _P.
`"""""` a##' "4P#mmm# _ya
_P !4####m ?]aa/
/' aaJ#U###m# 4QP'
' aa,/4!44! '
jf _'jQQQQyb7b /
'. '.QQQQ4QQPb )?
QQQ'QQP?' jg/ f
_yQP']QQb aa
a#W?'..QQQQ?)? ?'
"##' _jQQP'
.j? [ jQQ'
aJ jmaaX#L???
? am'

So try any of these live-streams based on telnet:

telnet ascii-wm.net 2006


telnet diego.ascii-wm.net 2006
telnet pinguin.eikon2.fs.ei.tum.de 2006

    This is amazing. Now during the work I can have a lot of fun. Some years ago at my home university students made a project of web cam signal catpure and adaptation under Linux’s bash. But of course it was not that exiting like telnet one! Best regards
