I remember the first time I drew a picture on a computer using a series of ASCII characters, in fact I still attach a small drawing to most of my email and blog postings.  I close my letters with a fish <><.  I just found a program that brings back fin memories of the old days.

                                 .' `'.__
                                /       `'"-,
               .-''''--...__..-/ .     |
             .'               ; :'     '.  a   |
            /                 | :.            =
           ;                   ':.      /  ,-.__;.-;`
          /|     .              '--._   /-.7`._..-;`

         |/        .   -' /     /  ;         |  =/
         (( ;.       ,_  .:|     | /     /   | =|
          ) / `     | `""`;     / |    | /   / =/

While it might be hard to tell from this reduction, this is a full page drawing of me done only with ASCII characters.  Just like the old days. While I must admit the applications for this are somewhat limited.  It is fun none the less.  Even a good youth worker needs a little fun from time to time.
