As a professional musician, I was a little shocked while watching a new TV ad for Microsoft's Internet Explorer e-mail program which uses the musical theme of the "Confutatis Maledictis" from Mozart's Requiem.

"Where do you want to go today?" is the cheery line on the screen. While the chorus sings

"Confutatis maledictis, flammis acribus
addictis,"

This translates to "The damned and accursed are convicted to the flames of hell."

Pretty much sums up what happens if you ever try to use disk compression.
