attach=1 with exe file is above, but doen't seem to recognize it.

my guess is that it wont accept an exe -
maybe if it were zipped?

There may be a bug with the forum attachment system with non-images.. i'm looking into it.

a fix is to use [attachurl=] instead of [attach=]

I think it's perfectly valid to scrub .exe files, personally.

cute idea.  i wonder if you could add other things to help remembering, like some kind of mnemonic image on top of each bar, related to the number word.

like:

zero -> zebra
one -> ox
etc.

While substituting the name of a number with the name of an animal is a nice idea, there might be a problem. Names of numbers often start with the same letter, so there could be some confusion.

I would like to suggest the following:
0        1         2  3  4  5  6  7  8          9
pause do(low) re mi fa so la ti do(high) (yeah) - for pop/rock fans
pause do(low) re mi fa so la ti do(high) (yoh!) - for rap fans
pause do(low) re mi fa so la ti do(high) (yeha) - for country fans

The silliness could help you remember as well.

I really like this idea - remember PIN's as mini-melodies :-*
(like that film where the aliens started playing notes, cant remember the name)
The zero could be remembered e.g. like a cymbal sound (a pause is more difficult) -- but people could make their own variation.
