"For too long, many nations, including my own, tolerated, even excused, oppression in the Middle East in the name of stability. Oppression became common, but stability never arrived. We must take a different approach. We must help the reformers of the Middle East as they work for freedom, and strive to build a community of peaceful, democratic nations."
- George W. Bush

This is a small utility that takes a bmp file an converts it into a ASCII image
for posting on forums that supports the [COLOR] tag.
At this time it only supports 24 bit bmp files where width * 3 / 4 is an integer (I haven't taken care of aligning).
It supports a form of compression to take the size of the image down and various chars to build the image.

Use it with care, the images can be quite large, so use images no larger than maybe 64x64. Use the compression feature to as high extent as possible without ruining the image.
