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.

ahhhh Toccata and Fugue in D minor...

Bach is seriously beast just listen to Passacaglia and Fugue in C minor.

It's seriously the most beastly song ever.

Bach Fugue? Nah sounded more like Super Mario Bros. (1 or 3) In the castles I believe.

@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.
