StephenK has yet to learn the way of the Dremel
That is so sweet! I'm always amazed at how far we've come in terms of computing power in just a few decades. I started using a C64 about 20 years ago when i was 6 or 7. I remember keying in a huge amount of code from the back of a programming book in order to get the machine to play a tiny and simple tune. Ah those were the days

BBC finds oldest digital music recording
Slightly misleading title - it isn't a digital recording, it's an analogue recording (or at least it was, it has presumably been digitised now) of music generated by an early digital computer synthesiser. So I guess you could say its a "digital music" recording, but it isn't a digital "music recording" if you get me.

Anyway, impressive just in terms of seeing progress in <60 yrs.

"Digital-music recording" was exactly what I was aiming for. I realise it was misleading, but it's hard to get "BBC finds earliest known recording of computer generated music" to fit the headline box.

Ha. It's not all the BBC finds.

Just imagine the computing power we will have 20 years from now.... Hope I'm still a tech junkie then.
