And this... well, this is quite simply the most awesome thing ever. A ZX Spectrum playing music and emulating VOICE... truly a work of genius (and someone who has far too much time on their hands):

Music starts just over a minute in (the first bit is simply to show it's really loading and running a program).

It looks amazing, people are so innovative. I remember one of my friends used to create small programs in C that would play music when it was run. I don't know how he did that but the results were always amazing.

Well, they use old PCs in schools, so floppy disks were still in use. I mean, 3.5mbs are enough to save couple of word files and things like that, and they were pretty cheap, so during a test we would just give the floppy disk to the professor and he would evaluate our work/test or whatever we were doing. Damn, I miss them, gonna install a floppy drive in my PC now xD

Ah just seeing the words floppy drive brings back some good memories haha. I always liked floppy discs, they felt satisfying to use, certainly more so than thumb drives or SD cards. I mean comeon, they had an eject button. Now the only time you see that is with CD/DVDs, it doesn't look as cool. ;)
