Back from an eight year hiatus*, we present to you the most incredible, beautiful, magnificent, wondrous, [insert even more adjectives here], thing you have ever seen in your lifetime: ice.org v3! Did you hear that? Crank up your speakers to 100% (we'll wait) and read that again. Yes, it's true, we are completely back (almost), mofo's!
Please check out the site, randomly click on things like a drunk monkey, reminisce the good old days, enjoy the great old school artwork, eat a burrito, and join the forums to tell us how awesome we are.
Artist Bob Ross shows you how to paint with ASCII characters.
For this animation I especially used extended ASCII characters, eight-bit or larger character encodings that include the original seven-bit ASCII characters as well as others. People who think that 'The joy of ANSI' would have been a better title, are totally right. ;-)
Hey, everybody! It’s the end of the month! Did you make it? Even if you didn’t, we hope the score of beautiful book covers and exciting synopses kept you company throughout this year’s NaNoWriMo season. We’re saying so long to November with this cover designed by Christopher Simmons!
