ASCII_BEAR - An ASCII_Tuber Avatar

I switched from using a second stream PC to
streaming directly off my main machine. 
It's working great. The only problem I ran into 
was that I didn't have a wire to connect my camera. 
I figured I'd make a little ASCII avatar while 
I waited for the cable to ship in. 

It turned into more of a thing than I originally
planned.
