In alt.ascii-art.animation,

BTW, alt.ascii-art is a better place for this content, since it does not
animate and gets more traffic. I've crossposted there.

If you do want animation, and have a C compiler, look here:

https://github.com/Eli-the-Bearded/vt100-slowcat

I'll gladly take additional animations if you have them.

HTML is not inheritantly ASCII art friendly, and it shows.

That's a good looking figure.

VT100 animations are _very_ much not HTML friendly

Hi Eli

ok ... it did occur to me to cross-post due to the content
but didn't and didn't want to post to alt.test

this is a test of me posting from thunderbird direct to the
ng instead of logging into google (to see if they mess it up)

from the above figure i derived/re-created roughly what i
was originally searching for but couldn't find (or missed)
