banner with alphanumerics?



Greetings,

Is there a "banner"-like program that has a horizontal option (as opposed to
the 90-degree rotation of the normal "banner") e.g.
http://en.jakilinux.org/reviews/sztuczki_z_ssh/ssh_login.png that uses the
alphanumeric character for each letter or number instead of the "#"?

In the above png, the "s" in "slackware" would be composed of the "s"
character, the "w" would be composed of the "w" char., etc.
