Remember those dot matrix ...

pictures people used to make? They were kind of an ancestor to emoticons cause they used keyboard letters and symbols to make a picture. One that was laboriously typed letter by letter by letter, calculating how many characters per line to get the image right. Yikes! I thought they were really cool. But I was wearing boxy teal jackets with enormous shoulder pads, so there ya go. This generator takes a photo or graphic of your choosing and translates it into just such a picture. Of course it's much more sophisticated, and there's no typing involved. Now I wear cardigans and I think these are cool. I may be pathetic, but by golly I keep myself amused.
