    machine-human code


    Hello there,

    I have just been scanning through Security Focus newletters archive, and found this interesting piece of code. Its just funny how eye recognizes some letters and tries to make a straight line between them...
    And you know I mean that.

    Funny ... the upper left quarter of C in 3C gets interpreted by the eye as its tangent (which isn't much different), forming the lines. The same goes for some other characters.

    It would be interesting to create such patterns with a program, especially since the output would be fairly easy
