Default save the sounds

from the Washington Post:
Museum of Endangered Sounds enshrines audio from bygone era

Here's the site for the museum: http://savethesounds.info/

So, if you're longing to hear the noise of a 56k modem, a dot-matrix printer, the ring of the original Nkoia cellphone, enjoy!

Soon to be extinct: the sound of flipping thru the pages of a book.
