Here's what I found when searching for Colins art...mostly diddles
and stuff, but it shows the great humour this man had.
There are more posts from on my site, Wicked Ascii Art, but it's mostly
collections of other peoples art.

His memory will truly live on online.
(Hope you see this Colin, whereever you are...)

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...

GIANT KITE - The Megabite
============================

Constructed by Peter Lynn of Ashburton, New Zealand, the kite is 55
metres long and 22 metres wide and weighs 150 kg. It is modelled on
a Trilobite pre-historic animal which it imitates by "swimming" in
the air.

20 March 1996

========================================================================

-------------------

Nice one.. but as far as I know, the kite is still named "Trilobite"

From: cf...@southern.co.nz (Colin Douthwaite)

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...

Was the dog dead or alive ?

Did the cat take a free lunch ?


Around this part of the world, anyone ending up in the dog-box would be
considered more dead than alive :-)

You're bringing politics into alt.ascii-art? How like a cantabrian. It
does explain why we hear a lot of Mooing comming from Wellington though.

Actually I usually wear shortie pyjamas except when going to

***What is a troll?

A fisherman would say it means to trail worms through water teeming
with fish, hoping for a bite. In newsgroup terminology, it means
pretty much the same thing.

***What is the objective of the troll?

The hobbyist may want nothing more than to provoke a reaction from
the newsgroup. Some do it merely to call attention to themselves.
There are career trolls who are dedicated to filling newsgroups with
off-topic posts, flames, and general confusion. Some trolls are
simple, while some are quite elaborate and long-running. Some
trolls have achieved a degree of infamy. You can find out who they
are by looking for the word 'troll and usenet' using any search engine.

***Is trolling only for the lonely?

No! The happiest trolls travel in packs. The more the merrier.
They give aid and encouragement to one another in their mission to
destroy the newsgroups they infest.

***What are the tools of the trolling trade?

Well, you have asked a big question there. For the creative and
enterprising troller, there are just too many to list. Here's a
brief sampling:

1. Hidden identities work well. As has been noted in the past, AOL
gives 5 screen names. Now, those can be used to good advantage.
The troller can appear to be 5 altogether different people as
he/she/it carefully fans the flames. Seemingly endless off-topic
threads that say nothing and go absolutely nowhere can be
constructed in this fashion. But if someone notices that there seem
to be 'too many' AOLers in the group, there's always:

2. REMAILERS. You can have all of these you want. A different
identity for every day of the week. Or, if this isn't anonymous
enough for your purposes, try:

3. ANONYMOUS remailers. It is said these are not easy to learn how
to work, but well worth the effort to the would-be troller.

4. Cultivate other trollers for *buddies*. They are handy for
backing up your ludicrous claims and other falsehoods. They will
add to the general chaos in the newsgroup you are attacking. You
will have need of your *buddies* as the posts grow further and
further off-topic.

And as the other people in the group begin objecting to your nonsense.

5. Never underestimate the power of e-mail. A troller can stay just
behind the scenes, but still participate in the fun via e-mail.
That person can use e-mail to encourage others to do their dirty
work. Posting objectionable comments and so on. The beauty of
staying disengaged in the nasty on-board comments, is that the
troller's reputation remains dainty. It's very important to have at
least one troller of the bunch free to appear to smooth things over
with the general population of the group.

-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+

***This is the Help Section for Trollers in Distress***

1. HELP! I've been identified as a troll! Whatever will I do?
Call them a troll right back. (Optional: Get your friends to agree
with you.)

2. HELP! I've been accused of making off-topic posts. Whatever
will I do?

Forthrightly declare that their own posts complaining about you are
off-topic. Remind them that the group is unmoderated and you can
post anything you please, so there. Bring out some of your extra
addresses to flame them.

3. HELP! I've been caught in a lie.

Take your pick: Change the subject, claim your posts were tampered
with/nuked, claim the person who is calling you a liar is a liar,
declare that you are afraid of the person, say the person has a
mental problem, say it's a free country and you have the right to
lie if you want to. Failing all that, get one or all of your
aliases to say it.

4.. HELP! Nobody likes me.

Well, what did you expect? Look at what you do for a living. Grow
a thicker skin.

" To sit in solemn silence in a dull dark dock
In a pestilential prison with a lifelong lock,
Awaiting the sensation of a short sharp shock,
From a Chippy Chippy Chopper on a Big Black Block.

<art & memories gently snipped>

This is excellent! If memory serves me correctly, he sent me this cow once
during a split debate in 1996:

Did Colin create this bull? I have it uncredited
in my files. I know that he posted it several
times-- but Colin posted LOTS of ASCII art--
his own creations and that of other people.
Does anyone know?

I've been working on a tribute page for Colin and
his contribution to ASCII art. Feel free to check
out what I do have so far...

I have no idea....I copied a lot of stuff from his mails.
It might have been another ones drawing, it doesn't have his
signature on it...

Hmmm :)
I also had that idea....just a collection of his arts that is.
For now you can find it on the recent additions page on my site.
(will be added to the collection soon...)

Wicked Ascii Art <http://www.wigwam.org/Ascii/> (finally up again :)
