The violin costumes are quite ridiculous :)
I still think the Kate Bush Christmas Special (which has noting to do with Christmas) is my favorite Kate performance.

Being one of the few people in the world to have ever seen Kate Bush on tour, I think you should make it your duty to see her now that she's decided to perform live again :)
This add popped up for some kind of stupid chat roulette site and the little webcam image in the top corner is of Scott Hanselman so I captured it.
I'm pretty sure Scott didn't give them permission to use his image in their ad.
@BitFlipper: Circuit Wizard is great and Multisim can do some very high end stuff.
The problem with this software is that they have their own list of components and sometimes you have to give up on one application because it doesn't have one particular part in it's database.
LTSpice has a large community of users and lots of times you can find user made components.
There seems to be a lack of good voltage regulators models for most software though.
Wow, I suddenly feel really old. I used to build all sorts of electronic projects using CMOS chips but now that you mention it, yes, that was a long time ago!
I also remember building an 8-bit successive approximation audio AD/DA converter for the ZX Spectrum (a whopping 48K RAM!) using discrete components. It was super noisy but worked more or less.
I haven't posted anything in C9 in a while but I have to say this thread is very encouraging. It's great to see that someone still cares about MIDI and VSTs in the MS based development world.
The people at ImageLine seem to still care considering they made FL Studio Groove.
It just happens that I'm working on making a very simple 8 step hardware sequencer to control breadboarded VCOs, VCFs and VCAs as I learn about oldschool electronics and CMOS chips from the 70's and 80's.
I could do all this stuff with a microcontroller and write a bit of software with the Arduino IDE but somehow that seems too simple and not much of a learning experience.
I probably will get one at some time but right now I want to learn the basics.
