Wait… What is That? Is That Someone Singing?
After having been away for a week on vacation, I came back to the office and went about things as usual: logged in, fired up my email (Outlook), browsed the web a bit.
Every so often, I noticed a slight *ding* in the background. It sounded a bit like someone singing, but I pegged it as some kind of annoying popup thing. I’d hear the sound, then go and scan the tabs I had open to see what was causing it.
Another thing I noticed was that my headphones were unplugged from my machine. I didn’t think much of it, but realized why after I finally tracked down the sounds.
Here’s what I found:
// Edit: Just looked around in Outlook Preferences, and found the Sounds/Alerts panel. There are two other messages with custom audio: for calendar reminders, someone sings “party time.” And for the “Welcome” message, someone sings “Shave your pubes.”
Well played, gentlemen. Well played.
