very funny. People have too much time on their hands. Amazing what
masterpieces are produced by bored misdirected enthusiasm.

It's been there.  There used to be a web version as an animated .gif,
IIRC, but I don't remember for sure.  I guess the original's online in
a Java applet at http://www.asciimation.co.nz/ - for those behind a
firewall which won't allow telnet, etc...  Don't build a jet-powered
beer cooler in your NZ garage without a fire extenguisher. :)

The ASCII art is produced by a program. It turns any movie into live
ASCII art ;-) The program is called aaxine and it is a part of most
Linux distributions. From the manual page:

"aaxine is for those who don't have a high end video card, but just want
to watch DVDs on their good old vt100 ;-)"

You can watch a DVD movie rendered on a terminal if you really want to

Yes, it is ;-))

Wish I'd taped the news item to make a video file, never mind

Not mentioned is the cost, which I'm sure he said could be up
to NZ$10,000 - $12,000. Hmmm, pass

Actually, this is an old thing that was done mostly "by hand" - not
from the real video footage.

However, I've found that if you get a large enough frame buffer-based
text display, the aalib display looks pretty good from a little ways
away.  The eMovix project uses mplayer to display video on a bootable
CD, and one of the rendering options is aalib (yes, you too can link
your video program against aalib).  There's lots of geeky cool
involved with the eMovix thing. :)

That's been around for many years.

I hear that the "new" funny Star Wars thing is that some guys put the
entire script into AT&T NaturalVoice and created an audio version of the
movie completely done with computerized voices.

Some people have too much time on their hands.  ;-)

It is simple heater,
Q = Cv T, Q = lamda * dT, two functions will define all thermal action

Q = W*t will describe eletrical heater.

that all. witch one need T to be control,
either in contant or sequence, pid control will be needed.
