Art

This:

is really nice. It’s apparently also a book but more importantly it’s just one elegant line of BASIC:

10 PRINT CHR$(205.5+RND(1)); : GOTO 10

or a line of bash

yes 'c=(╱ ╲);printf ${c[RANDOM%2]}' | bash

Beautiful, isn’t it? On a somewhat related note, I now own the domain code-museum.org - but I now that I have it, I realized that I don’t really know what to do with it. I just thought - well, this is art. Art is in museums. We need a museum for that.

Turns out, it’s not that easy to find other exhibits. I do know about another one-liner, in APL, which is even cooler (yep, I do mean that Game of Life thing) - but other than that? There are maybe two or three really nice entries from the International Obfuscated C Contest that I would include, too. I’ll have to check the licenses first, though.

All I’m saying is - I guess - think twice before you buy domains.

Happy hacking!
