    Red face Hi!

    I'm Allen.
    I suck at "doing" music but I love to listen to it. Can I still play?

    Thank you. I'm afraid I won't be much of a contribution to the art (or craft or science (whatever you experts here call it nowadays)) of music here (it is amazing how much the arts are starting to co-mingle with the sciences though (it's almost like a new reneseance), but I'm ever so witty and funny at any rate...thank you for having me.

    Hi there, Allen

    Krummhorn is right; play all you like here!

    Thumbs up

    Thanks Frederik.

    I e-mailed the link to the Toccata and Fugue (along with the credit and specifications on the organ of course) to some of my engineering co-workers...they were all impressed.

    We all work on the Space Shuttle Main Engines (The three bells on the back of the Orbiter) so impressing them is no small order.

    You're welcome Allen! I'm happy you liked my recording of the Toccata & Fugue (I have also replied to you here). I must say it's fascinating work you do, and I'm sure I'm not alone when I say you are more than welcome to tell us more about it if you feel like it.

    Hope you will have a great time here

    Kind regards,
    Frederik

    It's actually kind of boring Frederik...it's just a lot of analysis and developing requirements until something finally launches, I'm proud to work on the program though, especially the engines...they are thirty year old technology and are still considered cutting edge as far as materials properties and design goes...they are some amazing machines.
