But it would be wonderful to be able to do ASCII art again. I wonder if we could fiddle with the font...

Indeed. I was always fond of doing ASCII art on the old CompuServe forums.

If you want to try ascii art, try using the [pre] tags.

Oo! Yes! Somewhere I have an archive of an ASCII art creation app that I think Jonathan found. I enjoyed playing with it so much that I paid to get the full version. If only I could remember its name, so I could look for it and see if there's an OSX version.

I'm doing some digging on my disk and in my brain, but it hasn't floated to the surface yet :-)

I remember writing to the author to ask if we could get a current version for our lib, and I never heard back.

Indeed there is! Wahoo!

And my old registration code works with this version, too -- I just unearthed the old email with the reg info!
