    Over the years I've seen my share monitoring communications channels, both green and orange screens on terminals, but just not with that exact format.
    Also not that different from what would have displayed on my green screen during a tape read or write on my first personal computer in 1978.

    There is no practical reason for humans to look at binary code.

    01000001 is what the letter "A" looks like.

    It's Hollywood fiction based on 40 year old fact.

    You must have been there too, GLC. But I would have said 57 from personal experience.

    I've been looking for a good GIF of that green screen.
    Has anyone seen a good one, one without actors in the GIF.
    I'd like to use it for an opening background on my resume.

    That's the exact same pic on Independence Day. On the mothership screen after the good guys docked and uploaded the virus and the alien knew something was wrong...
