Happy Saint Patrick's Day! Actually, the timestamp on this post is for the day after and you may be reading this with a green-beer hangover. Blame me. It's the day-of, as I write, but I always write for tomorrow. Someday, my past will catch up with me and I'll begin writing in the present ;)
The piece of ASCII art that was the inspiration for our little script today ( or, in all honesty, the ASCII art I took and just perverted into a shell script ;) was found on Joan Stark's wonderful and massive ASCII Art Site. There's a lot of great stuff over there if you're into it. Definitely check it out, if you are.
From the description of the picture below, from her site:
The Claddagh is a visual portrayal of the eternal bond of friendship, loyalty, and love.
The HEART symbolizes love, life's finest impulse. From it, generosity and compassion flow.
The HANDS of friendship are clasped around the heart in a gesture of giving. As they cradle the heart gently, the hands are both protective and strong, like true friendship.
The CROWN is symbolic of loyalty. It represents the reward of love, the highest achievement the human spirit has yet accomplished.
To give the Claddagh is to forge the hands of love, friendship, and loyalty forever
Hopefully I'm jamming this out the door fast enough.
Happy St. Patty's Day! Or Happy The Day After!
Click the ASCII art picture below and marvel at the sheer volume of slashes and dots ;)
