T-SQL Mandelbrot

From The Daily WTF comes one of the most awesome and geeky things I've seen in a long time - the classic Mandelbrot set, generated in good ol' ASCII text using a single T-SQL select statement. Since it uses Common Table Expressions and the PIVOT command, it'll be for SQL Server 2005 and 2008 only.

The Mandelbrot set (not as ASCII art, though)

It's reassuring to know that somewhere out there are still some very interesting people with a lot of free time on their hands...
