250 generations: heavenly mega mix

Wow, it really is sounding better and better - with counterpoint melodies and everything. Make sure you listen until at least 00:50 (it's 2 minutes long in total). It's lovely at 01:17 too.

Mention: Slashdotted!

We've just managed to get the site back on its feet after a slashdotting. We've had up to 80 simultaneous listeners on the public channel, and we're racing past 30k ratings. 32k now! 220 generations.

The server generating the music is having a bit of trouble keeping up, so from time to time, you may hear the same 8 loops for 5 minutes or so. Sorry about that.

It seems like the East-Asian harmonies that appeared a few generations back have been selected against. (I didn't comment on them at the time because I didn't want to influence your ratings.)

Just imagine what we could do if we had 100 people on all the time, 10 different populations, and some intelligent way to move listeners between channels.
