Well maybe not quite but it there has been a few recently. Nothing really big though the one today injured 12 people and took out a curry house! “why oh why” the wicked witch cried as her chances of a narn bread and a vegetable balti for
I went to see this today, I hadn’t been impressed with the trailers but we all decided it would be entertaining. I would say it was, though it wasn’t fantastic I know it wasn’t ever gonna be scientifically understandable, but it really annoys me when they use terms incorrectly. The guy heated up to 4000K and the scientist said “that’s as hot as a supernova”…umm yeah right. Its as hot as the chromosphere of the Sun and the interior is in the millions of K. Argh. Come on graphite’s melting point is about 3948 K. Apart from that and some other guy mentioning that the machine didn’t have enough critical mass (are they just putting scientific terms in at random here?) it was good. It was fun, humorous and overall enjoyable – just gotta forget any science you know… hard to do that when you are about to start a PhD!
Another generator, my posts are a bit 1-D at the moment. This one is truly text though. It takes an image and outputs ASCII. I came across this when I was looking at some source code (that if I am honest I don’t have much of a clue about since I don’t know much about ASP.NET) on [The Code Project].
For an example I took an image of my mate Tom (looking like a gangster) and converted it (there are loads of options):
The output ASCII as dots (ok they are small and I guess not far off pixel sizes – well probably quite a bit but give the same effect only on a large scale), it is an image because the ASCII was very large and this was the faster option for displaying on my site (it also didn’t display correctly due to my style sheet, if you don’t believe me just give it a go):
Oh and here is the site: [ASCII-Generator]
