Is this the code monkey you meant? :-) Some friends and I are probably singing it, with some other things, for the CMU School of Computer Science (SCS) Day talent show.

Oh, and I forgot to mention that we sang Finite Simple Group last year (and did a much better job on it than I think we'll do on Code Monkey, it came out rather well), and are probably also doing Longest Path this year. :-)

Yep :) That's the one. Heard it from Bridget. (I'm adding your link above)

If you're singing other things - do you know any other math/sci/cs songs with decent music available on the net? I'd very much like more to listen to.

Neat about CS talent show - must be amusing.

Uhm. Anything by Klein Four. Anything by CSE Band, particularly Theory Girl and Enjoy the Soundness. The C Days of Y2K, by sing; sing; halt. Lots of stuff by Jonathan Coulton (see the link for code monkey above.) There's a silly and quite obscene but funny song called So Much Drama in the PhD by Monzy. There's also a song called "Mortal Calculus" by a group hailing from Harvey Mudd, but I don't remember the group name and can't find a link.

I don't believe there is a link, I think the frosh chem/stems songs just get passed around the network. The group was Stems, Drugs, and Rock and Roll, but I don't even know how many years ago they were.

Thank you for the name. Funwiki's page on them "StemsDrugsAndRockAndRoll" says they did at the time of writing have a website at http://sdrr.dhs.org/ visible only within the Mudd network.

When: Based on the members of the group and the funwiki "StemsSongs" page, looks like the group started in 1999Fall. I suspect they probably recorded their last song to date no later than 2000Spring.

The group consisted largely of Chessers Suite people. Songs were recorded in the 1999-2000 schoolyear. The website is defunct, even from on Mudd. I don't have songs, but if you wanted to get copies, you could probably check with Alex, or maybe Josh.

Thank you. I hadn't heard of the other groups you mention. Appreciate it.

Hm... I don't understand what it's all for though though, except XKCD, I adore that comic.

Actually it really is due to XKCD. Bridget showed me that over break - I can't resist posting a link to it. A comic that actually regularly posts things on math/sci/cs? And has a good sense of humor. Pleases me.

And I've been meaning for awhile to query people about music. How can I major in math and have only two decent songs on hand? I know there's more available from college somewhere but I don't think they ended up on my machine.

So comic highly concentrated in math/cs/sci. Comics with occasional references or that are sluggy insane entertaining. A couple of memorable college topic forwards that probably everyone's read anyway. And math/sci/cs music. Perhaps more things here later as I find them.

The sluggy link is: www.sluggy.com

Also, there's this: http://weboggle.shackworks.com/

Are you thinking of the various amusing answers to "You have a barometer. You are standing in front of a building. Describe how you will use it to find out the height of the building."?

Sluggy - Got it. Thanks. (Wish I could get it to point to a particular page. The second comic seems much more on par with theme.)

Barometer - yep that's it. :). Should be linked up now. Looks like the Barometer story actually has a clean cut source. (or at least the first couple of links were consistant).
