What are the sounds you use for your computer, like startup and shutdown sounds?

Mine:

Startup:
Joshua (the computer) from WarGames: "Greetings, Professor Falken."

Shutdown:
Gregory (the new kid) from South Park: Bigger, Longer & Uncut: "Get lots of sleep. Tomorrow, we'll all be risking our lives for freedom."

Error:
Sgt. Hartman (the drill instructor) from Full Metal Jacket: "What is your major malfunction, numbnuts?"

May the luck of the Irish enfold you.
May the blessings of Saint Patrick behold you.

I don't use Windows enough to care about startup/shutdown sounds anymore. But when last I did, I had a really nice thunderclap in my startup sound. I've sometimes thought of setting up a startup sound on my Linux box. never bothered to scrip it in though. I'd need a nice soundfile first biggrin.gif

Of course, it's also almost completely up and ready for login before the sound drivers ever get loaded.... Also, I should keep X startup quiet. I might be listening to mp3s or Highlander when I start X. I'm convinced I'd like nothing well enough to let it interrupt what I'm listening to. After all, that's one of the things I like about the new layout at www.quinlanroad.com. I adore Loreena's work, and I really like The Mummer's Dance, but a couple times I had to get really hasty to change the page because it started playing in the middle of something else I was listening to. I challenge you to try listening to two songs at once at equal volume and see how long it takes before you're either sick or turning it off. Lt. Cmdr. Data can do it, but he's a computer and can seperate them a little better than we can smile.gif

Go to "Control Panel" and click on "Sounds & Multimedia". Then, click on the "Sounds" tab. Scroll to the sounds you want to change and then click "Browse" to find the sound you want to use. Then click "OK" and then "Apply".

Question here, like your lord of the rings with Gandolf do you have to down load them from somewhere or what. I am such a computer idiot. I'm sorry. That would be neat to have. thumbs_up.gif

This is so fun. Not sure what I did but I shut my computer down after I put the files in my documents instead of the desk top and had to redo all of them. Guess I will just leave them on the desk top no biggie.

Thanks guys

Try it again. Go up to "File" and click "Save Page As..." and then name it as you see fit.
