100 technologies that changed the world

100 technologies that changed the world | ASCII Art | Scoop.it

Established in 1963, the American Standard Code for Information Interchange was the first standard system for encoding alphanumeric characters. ASCII made it easy to move data between systems, but, being American, it didn’t originally support accented letters, nor any currency symbols other than the dollar.

The Corpus Christi Prime

The Corpus Christi Prime | ASCII Art | Scoop.it
This number is a prime, with 2688 digits. It also looks rather a lot like Corpus Christi College, Cambridge. The top left corner encodes my initials, JRH, in ASCII. The bottom right corner is my date of birth. I was inspired by Numberphile's most recent video, which demonstrates a prime number of 1350 digits, which…

Creative Market has ASCII Art - For the Stealing | ASCII Art | Scoop.it
The ASCII Art pattern set is early Internet and retro 90s. Colorful, fun and creative—the designs are in vibrant, pastel and neutral colorways. Use these patterns for packaging, invitations, cards, gift wrap, wallpaper, notebook and book covers, social media banners, blog headers, Instagram posts, flyers, posters, fabric prints, stationery,
Laura Brown's insight:

You can buy this uncredited (artist initials removed) ASCII art. But, why buy it? Just steal it the same way this seller has. 

 

Use the art any way you like. What do they care, all they did was copy and paste it. Does adding a background colour give them full copyrights?

What is ASCII Art? ASCII Art is a module to allow for easy insertion of ASCII Art code signing. The art is automatically added to all pages via a custom post-render hook that prepends the art prior to the HEAD tag. ASCII Art Settings The settings page is located under the store menu at /admin/config/development/ascii-art Notice: This project has been discontinued due to lack of interest.
Laura Brown's insight:

No longer being developed due to lack of interest. A shame. I'm probably going to install and try it anyway. What's the worst that could happen...? I've survived so many other trials and errors I think I have gallows humour. Of course, it might work!
