    Playing with t he command line may be a tad old hat but can provide a great deal of entertainment even in todays slick electronic age,

    For instance if you have "ip6" working on your pc you can get Star Wars running in colour. If not then the black and white version will still entertain, especially if pumped through to your tv.

    My favourite is ASCII aquarium which looks fab on a 42" tv.

    You can get some of the fun stuff through SYNAPTIC on MX-15. Sadly not my favourite but this fish tank is quite neat.

    Oh I remember that star wars telnet from years ago - damn clever!!! :D I wonder how long it took them to put that together. I've not tried the IPv6 version until now though :bow:.

    If you've got Windows and want to watch it, you can enable Telnet via "Turn Windows Features On/Off" or just use "Putty" (it's a tiny, free download).

    Looks like Talk Talk does not do ipv6

    Code:
    $ telnet ipv6.test-ipv6.com 79
    Trying 2001:470:1:18::125...
    Trying 2001:470:1:18::119...
    telnet: Unable to connect to remote host: Network is unreachable
    
    Code:
    $ telnet ipv4.test-ipv6.com 79
    Trying 216.218.228.119...
    Connected to ipv4.test-ipv6.com.
    Escape character is '^]'.
    Your public address appears to be 92.0.39.32
    Connection closed by foreign host.
    
    I tested also at

    :cool:

    Known about it for a few years but never tried a full run through due to slow tinternet. Might give it a go now. It probably took them lifetimes. :D

    I had a play around with the offerings for Day 1 and 2. Stretching out your terminal gives you a longer train ride. Made some changes to the stock "santa" box and sent you all a message. You may have to view the screenshot enlarged to get it though.

    Have fun folks.:dance:
