Football gets ASCII'd

Truly mind boggling

Secure remote control for conventional and virtual desktops

Bootnote Fancy watching the World Cup footie, but don't sit anywhere near a TV? Have a terrible aversion to clear, colour pictures of international sport? Ever wondered what people do when they have too much time on their hands?

Well, your luck is in, because it seems you can now watch matches live on Telnet, gloriously rendered in ASCII. Er, splendid?

Streaming begins ten minutes before kick off, according to the site, which also boasts that it is: "The best, most ridiculous, most redundant graphical implementation of ASCII!"

This may very well be true - we'd love to know what you think. If you're feeling sporty and geeky all at once, point your browser here and watch the game on telnet.

All the cool kids are doing it. ®
