Watch the Soccer World Cup: Live in ASCII!

Sunday, June 18, 2006

Soccer is a great sport, and ASCII is great fun... so why not combine the two? Well, you can, and someone has. The project is called ascii-wm.net/. The site is streaming a live feed of the game in ASCII which can be viewed, by anyone, by simply telneting to their server! Using Linux, you can view the stream via telnet using the following command:

telnet ascii-wm.net 2006

Another way to view the stream is through netcat:

nc ascii-wm.net 2006

And there you have it! Enjoy watching your favorite sport in a new, slightly nerdy way!

Mirrors (original site often has too many connections):
telnet pinguin.eikon2.fs.ei.tum.de 2006
telnet diego.ascii-wm.net 2006
