Query boot and .iso image...
« on: June 29, 2015, 12:46:16 AM »
Sorry for the silly question, is this image supposed to be a miniature ascii Tux ? Seen it dozens of times/every boot, still can't figure it out.

Yep, ascii penguin.

Thanks for confirming. Made some quick penguins using basic ascii. The TinyCore project is more than welcome to utilize or modify. If needing three rows high, my favourite would probably be variation #3. Fun to make, enjoy!

Code: [Select]

1. Three rows high, no logo:

      ('v')
     /)   (\
    (/_m_m_\)

2. Three rows high, 'TC' logo:

      ('v')
     /) TC (\
    (/_m__m_\)

3. Three rows high, head slightly turned, 'TC' logo:

      ( 'v')
     /) TC (\
    (/_m__m_\)

4. Four rows high, 'TC' logo, cute hair:

       __//_
      ( 'v' )
     /) TC  (\
    (/-m---m-\)

5. Five rows high, 'TC LINUX' logo, cute hair:

        __//_
       ( 'v' )
      /) T C (\
     // LINUX \\
    (/--m---m--\)

6. Five rows high, 'TC TUX' logo, cute hair, wider stance:

        __//_
       ( 'v' )
      /) T C (\
     // T U X \\
    (/-m-----m-\)

More variations. Removed the obvious 'v' and 'm' letters to minimize distraction from the 'TC' logo. This 1st one is probably my overall favourite. Simple without clutter, just like TinyCore.

Code: [Select]
1. Three rows high:

      ( '>')
     /) TC (\
    (/-_--_-\)

2. Four rows high, wavy head:

       -~~-
      ( '>')
     /) TC (\
    (/-_--_-\)

3. Four rows high, spikey hair:

       _//_
      ( '>')
     /) TC (\
    (/-_--_-\)

Decided the 'v' makes the face look more Tux-like. My favourites are #2 or #3, wife's is #3. Okay...i'm done now  :D

Code: [Select]
1. Three rows high, simple, nice v-beak:

      ( 'v')
     /) TC (\
    (/-_--_-\)

2. Three rows high, ruffled lower feathers:
       
      ( 'v')
     /) TC (\
    (/~_~~_~\)

3. Four rows high, jaunty-angled top hat, ruffled lower feathers:
       _//_
      ( 'v')
     /) TC (\
    (/~_~~_~\)

But those are owls! q:

I just had to put an degree symbol for Tux' eye so I have this
Code: [Select]
(°-
//\
V_/_
in  /etc/init.d/tc-config  and  /etc/motd  blanked out.

Code: [Select]
echo " "
echo -e "  \033[1;30m(\033[0;37m°\033[0;33m- "
#echo -e "  \033[1;30m(\033[0;37m\0260\033[0;33m- "
echo -e "  \033[1;30m//\033[0;37m\   \033[0;32mBooting \033[0;33mCore \033[1;33m$(cat /usr/share/doc/tc/release.txt)\033[1;30m :: \033[0;32mKernel \033[1;33m$(uname -r)"
echo -e "  \033[1;30mV_\033[0;37m/\033[0;33m_"
echo -e "\033[00m"

\0260 might help to display the degree symbol in case of incorrect character encoding.
Code: [Select]
echo -e "  \033[1;30m(\033[0;37m\0260\033[0;33m- "

stupid ascii art is so much fun. O.o
Download a copy and keep it handy: Core book ;)

Ascii art is very fun, though not as cool as MS paint artwork.
To me they look like penguins. If i wanted an owl, it would probably look something like a horned owl:
Code: [Select]
       ,__,
      ( 'v')
     /(    )\
    /  ~mm~  \
Your stock Tux looks better with the eye, but i think it's extended ascii. I can't think of a good basic anscii symbol to use for an eye either.

Thanks for the pointer on /etc/motd. My stock motd file pasted below does have the eye but my old system does not display it during boot. Too bad, obviously looks much more Tux like with the eye.
Code: [Select]

Instead i get what appears to be a dash above the head, kind of like this:
Code: [Select]

 v_/_

We voted on the three rows high version, should be in the next release. Thanks!

That's great thanks! Sent you a thank-you PM earlier, very exciting.

No other distribution i've every tried so wonderfully allows users to get involved. Nice to be a part of the Tiny Core community :)

Sorry for bumping. Booting text mode lately, tux keeps staring. Feedback included owl-like and fat - very fair. Hard to create a tux only 3 lines high from basic ascii. Tinkering, feel free to use as custom /etc/motd or if developers have a preference. Improvements welcome. First image is the current TC tux for comparison, which after a while starts to appear busy with a freaky humanoid face. New designs simpler, still tux identifiable but more for the imagination.
