ASCII-Art Fonts

Found a great page where one could type some text, which then is printed out as ASCII art using a font you select. For example see the ASCII art version of „gpio“ below. Very hand to create „/etc/issue“ files on for Linux. Some of the fonts you will find also in the FIGlet project (where they also have downloads for code and fonts), and on Debian/Ubuntu there is a package „figlet“ waiting to be apt-getted 🙂
