Watch Star Wars on Command Prompt

Hello Everyone, Welcome to TechnoSpace. I In this post I will be showing you an amazing trick through which you can watch Star Wars, Yes! The infamous Star Wars on Command prompt! The one and only requirement is a working internet connection, which you already have since you are reading this post.


Most people (95%….just kidding, I myself don’t know how many) are not aware of the fact that they can watch Star Wars on Command Prompt. A part of the great movie has been done completely in characters (ASCII Characters) which can be viewed easily using any operating system with a command prompt. On windows we have the good-old command prompt through which we can watch Star Wars with just a few commands.

Knowledge of using commands is not required, so don’t worry if you are new to this and just want to try something new.

Most (Actually all !) of the commands can be copy pasted directly from this page to your command prompt.

 

This tutorial is being written especially for Windows, Mac & Linux Command Prompt. However, if you know how to use the “telnet” command on other Operating System/ Devices then you can modify the commands accordingly and watch Star Wars on Command Prompt on other devices too! This is because of the simplicity of the process involved, just connect & play type of work is being done here.

Hello Web Admin, I noticed that your On-Page SEO is is missing a few factors, for one you do not use all three H tags in your post, also I notice that you are not using bold or italics properly in your SEO optimization. On-Page SEO means more now than ever since the new Google update: Panda. No longer are backlinks and simply pinging or sending out a RSS feed the key to getting Google PageRank or Alexa Rankings, You now NEED On-Page SEO. So what is good On-Page SEO?First your keyword must appear in the title.Then it must appear in the URL.You have to optimize your keyword and make sure that it has a nice keyword density of 3-5% in your article with relevant LSI (Latent Semantic Indexing). Then you should spread all H1,H2,H3 tags in your article.Your Keyword should appear in your first paragraph and in the last sentence of the page. You should have relevant usage of Bold and italics of your keyword.There should be one internal link to a page on your blog and you should have one image with an alt tag that has your keyword….wait there’s even more Now what if i told you there was a simple WordPress plugin that does all the On-Page SEO, and automatically for you? That’s right AUTOMATICALLY, just watch this 4minute video for more information at. Seo Plugin
