Geocache Description:


***** NOT AT THE PUBLISHED COORDINATES *******

Have you heard about this Digital Needle Project? Eggheads have figured out how to program computers to "read" scans of vinyl records to play the music, in essence, creating a digital copy of the records. The program can discern the music from the bumps in the grooves.


From the project: "Once the image was ready, writing the decoder was very simple. All it did was rotate a "needle" around a given center at some predefined angular velocity, attempting to keep track of the groove the needle was initially positioned on. The offsets (dr) between this track and the basic radial were bunched into a sequence of samples. These were later converted into wav files (see the project at Digital Needle - A Virtual Gramophone).


I have scanned a record of The Police's single, "Wrapped Around Your Finger." To solve this puzzle, you must be the needle. Let's see if you can read the grooves and make the music play.

You can check your answers for this puzzle on Geochecker.com.

This cache fulfills the logging requirement for King Boreas' Jukebox Hero cache (GC14C5W).
