Long long ago, in a telnet far, far away...

・1 min read

I don't remember exactly where I first heard of this, but it's been around online for a very long time.

If you're on a mac or linux system, open the terminal and enter "telnet". When the telnet terminal opens, enter "o" (as in open), then enter towel.blinkenlights.nl.

Neato ASCII entertainment ensues.

It just makes me so happy that someone put the time into making this, and that it's still online after all of these years.

Sure Ben!

Telnet is an old internet protocol that's hardly used any longer. en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Telnet

And as an aside...
Thanks for making this website! I like it!
