Fun with sound cards (and graphics cards)

What I was trying to remember last night was CTHUGHA.
"An Oscilloscope On Acid" http://www.afn.org/~cthugha/
This program will exercise your soundcard, CPU, and monitor quite
well. It does all the high-powered DSP techniques, automatic periodic
signal detection and extraction, FFTs, and who knows what else. The
program also exercises your graphics display card.
I first installed it on a laptop and had fun playing audio CDs as the
music source. It was awesome.
Terry - I'd suggest the Emerson, Lake and Palmer would be good input
data for cthugha.
(Now I wonder how many tacos-types will tune in, turn on, and drop out
after running this program...)
(Who plans to upgrade his version of cthugha tonight.)
