I don't know if this got through the first time (damn DejaNews).
But to honor Colin Douthwaite's memory, here's a collection of ascii art
and diddles I found in my collection of ascii art.
<http://www.wigwam.org/Ascii/ - http://wigwam.askoyv.no/Ascii/>
Colin has many time helped out collecting ascii art from others, as a quick
browse to my collection will show.
While this might not be entirely just his works, it shows what great humor
this man had. (Still have?)

And Colin, if you are reading this (I hope they have online access wherever
you are now ;): cya!

His name will truly live on forever online!

Well, the globe didn't look quite round enough on my 80 x 24 monochrome
monitor so I put your horse back into Laura's globe and put some
snow back in there again...

I guess I ought to join in this " My First Ascii Art " game because
someone requested it.

I tend to be a collector and diddler rather than a creative ascii-
artist but I have done a few originals and I think " The Lamprey "
was my first ever original.


Someone was trying to create a new newsgroup named "alt.lampreys"
and opponents said the idea was stupid.

I had to find out what a lamprey actually was because it was being
said that lampreys liked biting cows. Anyway, here is my Very Own
Lamprey of mid-1993 vintage...

And the interpretation that Colin did of me as a response to
Joan's try...got to love this man :))
