Screw Toshiba's fiddle playing tin can.
And now, because you secretly asked for it in your heart of hearts: a version of Queen's Bohemian Rhapsody as played by an old scanner, floppy drive and Atari and TI computers. Not the best sounding version, mind, but squeezing the modern rock classic from creaks, hums, drones, beeps and squeaks of antique kit should soften …
I tried this but my Scanjet 3c died and it just doesn't sound or look as good even though I replaced it with an Epson GT6000.
There are some things that just shouldn't be messed with.
(excellent effort though, made I smile)
Paris, she should be messed with.
Imagine the fun you could have with this, printing out a specially prepared text document and playing "Guess the tune" as it prints.
Looking forward to a new fad starting here.
I do enjoy the old retro music stuff, I like to load up my Commodore 64 SID emulator ever so often and listening to a nice Martin Galway track, oh I can be such a geek some days.
Has bd594 being in contact with PRS/ASCAP or other collections agents for the MAFIAA, he could be sued for 30K for the irreparable damage he has caused the multimillionaires queen by not paying a licence fee.
Shame on you bd594, you shameless pirate for such a fragment breech of the copyright laws, will somebody not think of the poor musicians and record executive that have been damaged by such flagrant breeches of the copyright laws!!!!!
Paris, who has no shame either
" you could code IBM 360's to play tunes by generating radio interference."
Failing that, you could remove the 'key click" and use it as a piledriver hammer
"You could also get the golfball typewriter stripper too"
Also available in dot matrix
Paris, who dosen't need a golfball typewriter.............
...they would have had this on "That's Life". Music performed on strange instruments was a regular feature on that programme.
There was an impact dot matrix printer (9 pin, I think) in the Faculty of Science computer room at Kingston Poly that I'm sure could have been made to play "Uranus - the Magician" from Holst's "Planets" suite if I'd composed a suitable print job. Fortunately for the faculty computing office, I never tried. Not only would it have been a waste of paper, but "That's Life" was still being broadcast back then...
My very first foray into the world of computing was this piece of kit. With it's massive cartridge slot and only 3 cartridges in existence it was cack.
However I took comfort in having to program 14 pages of code to get a tank game that would only fire at the aliens if you solved a math problem first. Playability fail.
