# - Play Music on Your Printer, Scanner, or Other Peripherals! - good hack. In high school, I visited the Flight Control Center in Boulder, Colorado. Their huge machine room had boxes and boxes of memory, and three IBM 360 computers, a main machine, and two backup machines. Another floor held the display driver machines, made by Borroughs, I think. The operator played us tunes on his line printer, which spit out reams of paper while making very recognizable music.
