  1. What a waste of time. I like it! It would be pretty cool to see a visual representation of this with a router. Each note would be represented by a different depth of cut by the router.

  2. If i had an insanely expensive CNC laser cutting machine I could play the Super Mario Theme too. O wait I’ve had a Midi sequencer and speakers in my computer since the 486. And IT sounds better!!!! ;D

    No seriously that was cool, In a GEEKY kind of way.
