ASCII Nostalgia

ASCII Art refers to text based images popularized in the late 1980’s on the new personal computers, dialup billboard services, and the early internet. Perhaps you too want to resurrect your 5.25” floppy disks full of ASCII cartoon characters or ASCII porn. We’ll also show how you can create your own pieces via automatic translation of PNGs or JPEGs to ASCII, or you can even create manual pieces character by character.

We’ll also have line-feed dot matrix printers on site so you can print the works...very loudly...very slowly...like it was 1989 all over again.

Truly seasoned dot matrix printer users can also create sound or music:
