Distro logo in ASCII at terminal on startup.
I've noticed that the Arch-heads have been doing this for a while and it's kind of become a, "If you don't know how, you never will" sort of thing.
Basically it's some sort of script that allows your terminal, on startup to display different ASCII codes via some sort of... work.
I have no idea how it's done but I know a few of you run Arch around here, so maybe you can guide us apt-getters on how to do it?
