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:

The Chipophone — an 8-Bit Chiptune Organ 84

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!

Talent does what it can. Genius does what it must. You do what you get paid to do.
