Comments: Ringtone idea

Hey, long time no see! How's it going?

My old, old, old phone has all the tonal attributes of an Atari VCS.

So it was actually pretty easy to teach it to play "(I Can't Get No) Satisfaction," once I figured out the interface for keying individual musical notes.

...I have the perfect ringtone for annoying everyone within hearing distance: record a MIDI of several minutes of screaming three-year-old toddler.

I could gladly supply the sound source...

MIDI files contain note data; not captured sound. Only some of the newer handsets can use recorded sound (.WAV files, maybe) as a ringtone. Se the first thing you need to look into is what your handset uses. When I carried the engineering-grade Nokia 6190 I was pretty good at editing MIDI files so it would like them but I haven't even concerned myself with what my current mobile would use.

I want my cell to emit a rank odor when I recieve a call. Where's the technology for that?

Actually my current ring tone is "The Final Countdown" by Europe. Ever since I started watching Arrested Developement it has been my tone. Gob, the brother who is the idiot magician, uses the song every time he pulls a lame magic trick. Plus it was the ring tone on his actual phone on the show. You know, in the episode where Tobias photographs his balls and the government thought it was a photo of Iraq. If you have never seen the show, I insist you watch it. I'll shut up now, and go crawl back under my rock.
