Hi Ramon,
The link doesn't work anymore... do you have any mirror? Or if isnt asking too much, could you send me this app?

Hi Bardelli,

Sorry, I only saw this post request today (yes, 4 years later). I don't actually have it myself either.

It was odd. Effectively it had a routine that "accessed" the local file:///a:/SOME-NONE-EXISTENT-FILE

Because that actually works, the drive makes a weird sound when a floppy is not in there.

I was then able to execute massive numbers of these accesses which corresponded to the length of a note.

If I ever find it, I'll be sure to post it up.
