FauxRetroFilter: Help me remember an entirely ASCII dynamic website.

Years ago on the internet I came across a personal homepage that had been constructed entirely of monospaced text. The content was generated dynamically and the layout was similar to a typical blog (I think). I thought it was brilliant at the time and have wished for years that I could find it again, but I have no recollection of what was on the site or how I initially came across it.
Just to be clear: the site consisted entirely of text, but it was laid out mimicking a more graphical format. I'm assuming it did this through lots of behind-the-scenes string manipulation.
If you know of anything that fits this definition at all--it wasn't the site itself but the concept that was so cool--I'd love to see it. Google is failing me (and the original site may be long gone).
