    to run this in Vista you have to enable the telnet client. Start>Control Panel>Programs and Features on the left side of the window, hit Turn windows features on or off. from there, go down the list and select Telnet CLIENT ( not server) let it load it, and now it is enabled. Vista has telnet disabled by default because it is a security risk and vista's main focus was always SECURITY. though i would bring that up :P

    Haha sweet my Instructables are being advertised by people :P Who ever thinks that this can only be viewed on Windows XP is either lacking in intelligence or is just a computer nubcake :)

    run this command: "telnet towel.blinkenlights.nl" (without the quotes) and to the people who say it only works on xp - not only have I done this on my vista pc perfectly, it even works on the terminal emulator on my hacked ipod touch!

    oh and you can just do that in cmd, no need to run telnet. the reason this doesnt work as well in vista is because by default telnet is not activated, and you need to do something to activate it. but if you use the telnet command in cmd it works without any changes necessary.

    Telnet was a filesharing thing before the internet came out. It's not on the computer. When computers used to only be conected through phone lines you could get some data but not big webpages like today. It's coming from your phoneline.

    not to mention the guy that originally made it has a website: asciimation.co.nzasciimation.co.nz

    so yeah, to sum up everyone else:

    1) this instructable has been done before
    2) this is not hidden within XP (it's telnetting out)
    3) this is not unique to XP

    I've seen this before, it's pretty crazy, I can't believe they actually did this.

    The little dot things are called quotes. " When there are two of them together, as you've used them, they are called double quotes, but quotes works too. If there is just one, like ', then it's a single quote.

    I (and others) typically referred to them as "tick" and "double tick" - but that's been in more of a programming setting :p
