Introduction: How to Watch Starwars With Computer Symbols on Command Prompt

This is just a wierd trick I learned so I decided to post this. You can watch most of the beginning of the first Starwars movie, which is episode IV from command prompt made by some guy. It's pretty cool.

DISCLAIMER: I am not taking credit for this. I am in no way responsible for making or being a part of making this trick. I am just doing my part in letting you all know about it.

Step 1: Opening Command Promp

Go to the start menu, go to accessories, and command prompt should come up.

Step 2: Type in the Command

The command to watch the starwars movie is the following:
Telnet Towel.blinkenlights.nl

Type that in letter for letter (including the space between Telnet and Towel) in command prompt. Two messages should come up for a little bit, then the movie will start playing.

Step 3: The Result

Now the fun part- Just sit back and watch. It's poor quality due to the fact it was made frame by frame with computer symbols, but this must have taken the guy who made this forever.

Go to Control Panel › Programs › Turn Windows Feature On or Off and ticking both the telnet check boxes. That should make it work

To let u guys know .nl at the end means neatheralands that is where most viruses come from

author
thinker made it!(author)2008-04-15

actually most viruses come from germany or america
the netherlands Does have some of the least secure servers and most volatile connections, and connecting to an unsecure server can lead to you getting a virus, but only if you havent secured the data flow to/from the ports on your computer.
So its your own silly fault really
and by the way
if you want people to take you seriously
spell properly

It does not work, Is this a fake? There is no such thing as telnet, it does nothing.

author
darthtrooper made it!(author)2010-04-08

it is real as long as you go to run, type cmd, then type telnet, type o, then type towel.blinkenlights.nl and there you have it!

author
VincentTheVampire made it!(author)2009-12-09

umm, i think telnet is just a logon for internet before there was world wide web like when DOS was used you would logon to like .nl  for example the netherlands and see what they're doing, its just a protocol really, its real, and i know it haha, my father is a genius when it comes to these things,
