|Yeah, well, I like it anyway...|
Yeah, well, it was pretty cool back then. Today, it's an embarrassing sort of anachronism. But it would be a shame to lose such Internet-infancy preposterousness to the vagaries of history. So, other than this paragraph, here we are, preserved for posterity... The Pink Floyd MIDI banner page!
Every now and then, I get a complaint about the music used on this site. Perhaps 50 times as often, I get a compliment. The simple truth is, I like it, and I really don't care whether you do or not (though I hope you might!). Anyway, I have offered you a means to turn it off permanently, by setting your Favorites link to a non-active home page. But for those of you who enjoy it, and would like to hear more, here's your opportunity.
All of the default tunes played here were originally composed by Pink Floyd. I've searched the web, listened to many different cuts at each, and chosen the ones I felt were most interesting and best produced. Here's what you hear when you randomly load my home page...
These are selected randomly when you load my home page or Refresh the banner. I tried to only use the smaller ones, but a few of the larger ones were just too sweet to pass up.

Here are a few more that were either too large to impose on visitors, were of too short duration to fit the role of 'background,' too clich , or just didn't fit in for some other reason.
