    That was interesting for me because I'm a nerd. But even I kept thinking "waaaaay too much time on your hands buddy!"

    Wonder how long it takes to program a song?

    "Yes I sing at church. And I sing at work. And I sing at home... and in the car... at the supermarket... at Wal-Mart..."

    I'm just a nerd hiding in plain sight who is totally inept at taking selfies. (Yes... I blinked at the last minute.)

    By splitting storage, you can build one VERY secure document storage receptacle. My work computer split anything I saved between two hard drives.

    Wow, that is impressive certainly. I never would have thought to compose music with the sounds of printers and old floppy drives... Though I did use the beep of a power switch to a printer in a song once, but that's slightly less impressive.

    Still, though, whenever I see things like this I have to think to myself... But was the music really any better quality than an orchestra or even a normal video game? Not really.

    I mean... what do you do with it once it's made? You certainly can't transport it easily and I'm sure it takes weeks to program a single song like this. The impracticality of an invention like this lessens the awe-factor a ton for me.

    It's art.
    Art doesn't need to be practical.
