Deeply psychedelic ANSI scroller is longest ever
Blocktronics' ACiD Trip won the Freestyle ANSI/ASCII competition at last week's Demosplash 2013 event at Carengie Mellon University. Created by 22 artists, it's apparently the longest ANSI scroller ever at 3,266 lines long. Scroll it yourself right here. For those not hip to the lingo, ANSI is the American National Standards Institute but in this case refers to the 256 character set used in early computer operating systems. It's basically an extension of the usual 128 numbers, letters, and symbols of ASCII. More shapes, the ability to create colors, etc.
