A Raspberry Pi based Portrait ANSI Art Scroller using Linux and Python

Similar projects worth following
This project takes ANSI Art from back in the day and puts it up on display as it should be. It uses a Raspberry Pi A+ (had it laying about), a small amount of Python and Linux to display the art. The art is selected at random from the scene artpack archives (see sixteen-colors archives). The art is displayed in portrait mode with a faux baud rate delay.

I'm using a 19" 16:10 aspect monitor as the main project screen. The two images with the NES controller phone cover on the left hand side are running on a 80cm LCD.
