  • Windows start up sound

    I was trying to think of something good to make for the windows start-up sound, and came across this webpage
    http://soundamerica.com/sounds/tvshows/Knight_Rider/
    There are some that I think would be pretty funny for others to hear when your computer starts up. For those of you who dont know, to modify the default sounds, go to control panel and click sounds. Click the sounds tab and youre free to modify any windows sound that you want. Have fun!

    You don't want anything too long b/c that delays your windows startup.. 5 secs or so of "Lowrder" might be cool, but added 5 sec every time to my bootup? And it's only cool when you want to show someone else.. *shrugs* Not worth it IMO.

      Windows doesn't let the sound stream in the background?

          Nope, startup and shutdown times are to be removed for the fastest startup and shutdown times..

            Yes, you will get tired of it. My first mp3 player (running Win98) played "The Microsoft Sound" . Of course, the sound wasn't as epic as it is in XP but it still got very annoying. I suppose I could have removed it. But I was lazy then. I guess I'm lazy now too.

            Damn, I'm lazy.

            You could put cool flashing lights in the front of your car just like KITT though.

                  When you get tired of KITT, you might like this Bender clip that I use on my desktop.

                  I don't reboot very often, so I haven't got tired of it yet.

                  If you want to use it, you'll need to convert it to .wav, or email me and I'll send it to you. I think it's around 800KB.
