Exclamation Hidden Movie in Windows XP

Believe It Or Not-Watch Hidden Movie In Your Computer

Windows XP Home Edition - Star wars episode 4 a new hope

1. Open Windows XP and go to Start, then run.
2. Type in or copy "telnet [removed]" without the " " .
3. Sit back and watch the ASCII movie

It will work on any computer that allows a 'terminal' connection. For example - telnet, putty, etc. Though the format will be different on every OS.

Thanks --
One more example of how some people have WAYYYYYY too much time on their hands.
But -- I guess there are worse ways they could have spent it :-)

Just one point of clarification for the detail oriented
The 'movie' is not 'hidden in XP'
It is simply hosted on a server -- sorta like a web page
I'm guessing from the opening text - the server is in New Zealand.

As mentioned in the original post-- you can access it from pretty much any machine running any OS -- as long as you can run telnet.

From what I know of programmers --
There are probably a lot of neat/weird undocumented things embedded/buried/hidden in Microsoft's code.
This just isn't one of them ---

Thanks for posting this link -- it brought a smile to a day that needed one.

The one who says it can't be done --
Should avoid interrupting
the person doing it.

This isn't in Microsoft's code. Telnet utility program and protcol which will allow your computer connect to a network. That URL beside the telnet command is a network.

It's nothing to do with Windows XP.

Also, it is advise that you never use Telnet or run anything like the user showed above without knowing what you're doing. For all you know, you could be connecting to a network with harmful programs.
