Kiernan pointed me to a fun program called
Flinger. It has a computer sing
to the melody in MIDI songs. Here
is a page of example mp3s. It’s like Stephen Hawking’s greatest karaoke hits.
I was just watching the first episode of Doctor Who from 1963. Little did the doctor
know back then that he’d spend one out of five episodes in a gravel quarry
I was just remembering the old
Atari 400. My uncle gave
it to our family and it started my fascination with computers. I used to
spend hours typing in BASIC game programs from books. I wasn’t creative enough
to write my own programs at the time. The flat keyboard
would hurt the fingers after typing on it for a while.
