Remember when all computers had lines through the zeros?? Ah the good old days of programming for DOS computers. What can I say, numbers just don't look right if the zeros don't have lines through them.


Print it out and put it on your desk... everyone probably knows you're a computer nerd anyway.

Love this..

How did you get the "colorful" version? Thinner layers in different colors glued together?

wow, that does take me back!
Yes I had lines thru Zeros, and spaces were lowercase b's with slashes thru them as well.

beautifully done!

I'm going to 3d print a lawn so I can tell the kids to get off it.

A little random, but funny as hell. Here you, start printing! http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:26649http://www.thingiverse.com/thi...

Yep, if it doesn't have a line, it's an "O", not a zero.

I can't stand fonts that just use a line for a lowercase L as well as an uppercase I.... such as the font in this box for example... and the default windows font as well... I l I l I l what is it?? not to mention trying to use it for a number 1 as well.. it's just hard to read. I can see using the same silly line on an old typewriter where it would have taken a lot more mechanics to get the other symbols, but there's never been a reason on computers. if DOS could use something other than just a line for l's and I's on a monochrome monitor, why can't wondows 8?
