Does anybody remember this from back in the day???




This is a cool little trick to watch a star wars episode in telnet.

First, make sure you are connected to the internet.

1.Goto run.

2.Type in or copy “telnet towel.blinkenlights.nl” without the quotes.

3. Hit Enter.


Enjoy!!!




Also, for those who want another easter egg, save the above .gif file it has a surprise in it. For the first one to figure it out I might give the lucky gamer something special!!!!



Also REMEMBER TO FOLLOW THE PATH OF THE "Jedi"

Was a brilliant idea, and well executed.

To "break the code" you might need this:

The rest of the answer can be found in my first post!!!!


Good luck to all...
oh and an understanding of steganography might help!!!

Honestly, I haven't tried yet. Code breaking isn't exactly my thing. The closest thing that I do to breaking codes is converting d20 stats. Smile

Saved the .gif file and have no idea what I'm supposed to be looking for... nor does the telnet link work.

Tho, I do remember the old ASCII art movies from back in the days of gopher, ftp and telnet. I'm assuming that's what this is.

Way to go Zorg shoot me an email at zadamw@hotmail.com. To everyone else, thanks for playing....


The "Link" works for me: For everyone running WindowsXp (What I'm running) go to start, click run, and paste in the link :

telnet towel.blinkenlights.nl
