  1. For a variation on hard drive noise use ‘cat -A’
    -A is a flag that prints non-printing characters, it makes the sound a little more whiny, but when you get to a hunk of data it gives cool videogame-esque sounds.

  2. The last time i was with some friends we used the slackware terminal to listen to the data…we kept creating text files with our names in them and playing them…

    “Man…your name sounds bad…”

    something like that…

  3. Those Astromech droids are pretty cool.

    Somehow it’s a little dissapointing to see ’em not being equipped with the odd set of leg-mounted thruster units or say, a periscope.

    (please don’t mention the estes R2D2 rocket!)
