I was lucky to be one year senior to Linus at Lunds Tekniska Högskola (Lund University's tech faculty). He's done a lot of crazy things, his project where he implements a VM running Conway's Game of Life using symlinks is really out-there. Here's a link: http://www.linusakesson.net/programming/symlinks/index.php

The Chipophone — an 8-Bit Chiptune Organ 84

Posted by Soulskill
from the tones-of-childhood dept.
adunk writes "Linus Åkesson has built an 8-bit synthesizer inside an old electric organ case. 'All the original tone-generating parts have been disconnected, and the keys, pedals, knobs and switches rerouted to a microcontroller which transforms them into MIDI signals. Those are then parsed by a second microcontroller, which acts as a synthesizer.' The Chipophone is perfect for playing classics such as the Super Mario Bros in-game music or Rob Hubbard's Spellbound. A description of the build process, with photos, is available."

I fully agree. Bureaucrats would most likely end up with that conclusion. That still doesn't make it correct that the total taxation revenue level would be 30%. It would still be 15% on each transfer. I mean, it's not the bureaucrats' fault that the stupid companies insist on sending photons both ways. Stupid companies!
