But is there more to super pi than just those five numbers. At The Science Rant, we think so, and have a far more revealing discovery to present on SUPER PIE. Yes, revealed here for the first time, the real reason behind what makes Pi into Super Pi. Enjoy.
Yes, its true. Any day can be Super Pie day with the correct addition to Pie.
Sincerely and scientifically yours,

Sound can be created from a speaker of course, and for computers in the early 80's, good old 8-bit programmable sound generation could be produced using sound chips. The sound chip simply generated a wave form and you could control its frequency and sometimes volume or the amplitude (height) of those waves. You could also control the duration of the tones and with great dedication you could program music. This 8-bit style music has some dedicated musicians making amazing productions that are quite complex. This one below, I highly recommend for your listening pleasure. If you ever liked Metallica, you will like this. I recall seeing the video of Enter Sandman during its premiere on MuchMusic in the 90's (Canada's version of MTV). Enjoy.
