The Worlds Largest Tetetext Picture

The amazing Simon Rawles (the creator of the Edit.tf, the system I use to create these Teletext pages) and myself decided to do something a little more challenging at the NOVA 17 demo party, and that resulted in Simon writing a version of the editor in one afternoon that allowed me to work on a huge canvas, the dimension of this monster is 40 x 200 sixels rather than the standard 39 x 23 sixels.

Over the next 4 hours (including debugging) I produced this piece of art, the first ever 39 x 200 Teletext page.  Obviously this screen cannot be displayed on a standard TV but it does comply with the specification of Teletext and can be displayed as 8 separate screens.  I hope one day to produce a larger image, maybe even at 4k resolution.
