Official DonationCoder song
« on: December 18, 2010, 07:23:14 PM »
  You've got to hear the official song of DonationCoder....   :D

(Taken from PCWorld newsletter....)

Listen To Your Webpage Code
Ever wonder what your favorite Website sounds like? Codeorgan reads a
Webpage's HTML and converts it into a musical melody. Some pages sound great
(try PCWorld.com), while others sound like a band that has had a little too
much to drink (I'm looking at you MySpace).
http://www.codeorgan.com/

  The best one I've heard so far is http://www.thatscomedy.com/default.htm

The donationcoder.com website does not sound so pleasing to my ears, I'm afraid.

It is however a very long song, which is more than I can say from some of the big name websites I tried  :Thmbsup:

This is pretty cool...sounds better than the midi made from the text of the About Us page:

http://www.donationc...ex.php?topic=16961.0

Although the midi does sound more bird-like.

DC seems to have a sitar/drum/cymbal base, with maybe a theremin- or organ-like forground?  Appropriate, I guess, considering some of the esoteric extant conversations.  Kinda neat.  Unfortunately, any of my stuff is somewhat cacophonous (?)  :(.  Hm-m-m ... wonder if submitting violates my NDAs  :-\ :P?

  Whatever it was, it must have been "Harsh".  ;)
  But then again, I think all porno is pretty harsh.....

Couldn't resist ... had to find a link and try it ... a bit raucous for my taste, but not unpleasant  ;D.  What I'd like to find is a link that will play a reasonable emulation of Bolero :P.

That would be fun, if the music was appropriate to the site.

microsoft.com would play Van Halen's "The Full Bug" perhaps  :P

Well...I tried about two dozen URLs.

The best was www.longreads.com  which sorta sounds a little bit like something akin to what somebody might think almost feels a lot like music. I'd give it an 8 for danceability, but only a 4 for political content. I'm sure headphones and a second drink would have significantly improved my listening experience and appreciation.  :P

However, www.sacred-texts.com apparently hangs the script. Draw what conclusions you will from that I suppose.

Note: I also couldn't help but notice how musical www.codeorgan.com itself sounds.

Purely a coincidence?  8)

@Tinman57 - Great find! Fun website. Thanks for sharing.  :Thmbsup:
