Character Graphics Contest

There are folks who hesitate to post problems because it's difficult to
include good supporting drawings, thanks to the limitations of character
graphics. We have a couple programmers (Asa and Helen) who are working
on a long-term solution to this difficulty. However, there are good
examples which have appeared here and elsewhere which demonstrate that
plain old ascii can sometimes be used for very good drawings.

In an effort to tide us over until Asa and Helen come through, we're
having a Geometry Character Graphics Contest through the month of April.
Just post your favorite original geometry character graphics drawing to
this thread. First prize: a copy of the new video "Animated Geometry"
by the Geometry Center (or your equivalent choice from the Media Magic

If you have nice non-original character graphics drawings, or nice
originals you don't care to submit, just post them to another thread or
send them to me directly. We're particularly interested in getting good
circles, other conic sections, etc., that folks can use in communications.

The decision of the judges (i.e. Asa, Helen, Gene, and Annie
[representing The Arts]) will be final. All entries will become the
property of everybody. Asa wants to run a "worst character graphics
email signature contest", so save your failures for that.
