Fugue not found indeed - it begins in the very next section!

BTW - pretty amazing to note that he was writing all this stuff for Jesus.

@keith2, but floppies don`t use IDE, except for the LS120 SuperDisk Drive.

That was cool. Took me back to my brief foray into IT about a million years ago... sitting in a room full of IBM 486 servers when they were the fastest thing going.

How do you get 4 floppy drives to work in the same PC, I always thought the bios limit was 2, unless you add a isa/vesa bus i/o card and address them directly after configuring the jumpers.

@Angilion I was in London many years ago with time to spare so I took a look at St. Paul`s cathedral. As I walked in that started playing. In a building that size with an organ to match it was mind blowing.

In case anyone is interested in the music itself, I`ve found a nicely done piece on the sort of instrument it was composed for:

Yes, the organ really is that big

The 2-digit LED display on the front reminds me of my first PC. A full size tower in the 80s, about 3 feet high and 2 feet deep. The LED display was normal in those days and showed the clock speed of the CPU...but it was actually controlled by jumpers. So I set mine to show 88, to freak out people who didn`t know that. An 88MHz CPU! Awesome! It was actually 33MHz - a 386DX-33, high end kit that cost me a bundle.

@tn11 I remember doing that in "computer class" too, but I had the semester of electricity and I would shock my floppy drive everytime I touched it and it would delete everything on it. It was so weird

saahweeet. I remember in school when the teachers would ask us to bring floppies to store papers that we worked on in class. It makes me feel... old.

I was wondering what that mysterious "A:\" drive was on my computer. I thought you put paper in the slot to scan or something. Silly me.

@green_batman

Reading data at different point of the disk required the disk to spin at different speeds, causing a different sound.
