    Wow , thanks ... I mostly listen to chiptunes like outbrk by sabrepulse . But there is a song that is awesome for this and its (( crystals )) by M|O|O|N .
    Btw , youtube is filtered here but I know my ways around and can bypass it easily ... if you live here you have to know your ways around hacking and such ... I know its not correct to hack and such , but thanks for the reply . I really appreciate it !

    Ah, thanks, Mark, That was going to bug me. Shame some one would have to hack to watch youtube. I typically feed my fat imperial USA belly 20-30 youtube videos a day (all science-related, of course, except for the occasional world war 2 video). I couldn't imagine not having that access..:oldfrown:

    I would start with Kraftwerks Autobahn, a little dated but its inspirational in a tech sense.

    If you want something from Portal, shouldn't be Cara Mia Addio/Turret Opera? With the Fat Lady Turret?

    Back in the day the most popular computer music was played on large band printers when some joker would sneak a bogus deck of cards into a batch run. The most common song was "Anchors Away".

    GlaDOS, the computer in Portal, has become a crowdsourced pop star in the USA. In Japan it's Hatsune Miku, a sweet innocent girl. The US version is a sociopathic murder. Maybe I'm not surprised.
