I don't know whether to admire or pity the guy who did that!

Maybe Episode 1 will be better in Asciimation that it was at the cinema...

Why don’t you knock it off with them negative waves? Why don’t you dig how beautiful it is out here?
And say something righteous and hopeful for a change?

At least Han shot first.

Han shot first because he started to do it BEFORE the SEs. I remember seeing this 2 years ago... And he didn't finish it yet!
“Voice or no voice, the people can always be brought to the bidding of the leaders. That is easy. All you have to do is tell them they are being attacked and denounce the pacifists for lack of patriotism and exposing the country to danger. It works the same in any country.” — Nazi Reich Marshal Hermann Goering

Wow, that guy has seriously got way too much time on his hands.

Plus, even two years ago would be after the SE came out.

Even SEVEN years ago would be after the SEs. But apparently he started doing it in early 1997.

The internet was around before 1997 as well.

But it first went comercial around that time.

Around here, only rich people and businesses had the internet until about 1998.

I'm definitively NOT rich, and I had an e-mail back in 1994 thru a BBS, and full internet access by early 1995.

I was reading The Way Things Ought to Be by Rush Limbaugh--it was first prineted in 1993 and he had to actually explain what an email was in parenthises...

Funny how much things changed so fast.

It's asciianimation, it's simply a text file with the "frames" drawn with letters. The java applet is simply opening the file and showing it at the proper speed. If you opened it with, let's say, notepad, changed the size of the window to fit the "frame", and pressed scroll down or page down, you would see the animation, hence it cannot contain audio. That it, until someone invent asciiaudio...

Some websites have audio files that play along side the animations of the page. He could have done something like that.

Yes but these are flash movies. The whole point of that asciianimation is that it could be done entirely on a notepad text editor... adding sound to it would be "cheating", in a way.
