    Back in the day of Geocities, Angelfire and when websites still had MIDI files embedded, I had one MIDI in my collection that I loved. 10 year old me thought it had a beautiful melody and found it inspiring to listen to. Always made me think of Vikings sailing to North America.

    There wasn't much information available online beyond the meta data on the file.
    As MIDI sites started to die out and the internet changed, references to vktheme and the song are disappearing from the web. As of 2013, there's only 1 or 2 sites with the file available for download.

    Why this post? Just to see if there's anyone out there googling "vktheme". :)

    Have a listen. I used an online midi2mp3 converter with the Chorium SoundFont.

    Back in 2002 I put midi music on my angelfire and tripod websites. Mostly WWF and Final Fantasy. I thought those were the good days of Internet. MSN Messenger was popular. Aim too.

    So I’m commenting on this like 5 years later, but I had to make an account just so I can ditto what Andy said back in 2014!
    @milquetoast, your post made me think, “Wait... did I write this?” it sounds identical to my own experience with this midi back in the day.
    I was very happy to find this. Ive searched for it for a very long time without any info other than the name vktheme.... And you posted it on my birthday, no less! It was meant to be.
    Thank you!

    Link is dead, does anyone still have it? I too remember this tune. I believe the composer is a physician and programmer. I'm not sure if he's even aware he's brought delight and joy to people around the world.
