From Twitter 08-13-2010 [Aug. 14th, 2010|04:01 am]

  • 07:27:15: Lot of yesterday's email still to read & work through before starting today's words.
  • 09:08:40: Progress this AM slow but steady; should make word goal for week today. #amwriting
  • 09:14:59: Any way to turn off Windows sounds (e.g. for incoming mail) while listening to CD on computer? Annoying to hear BLEEP in middle of Mozart.
  • 11:27:02: Young cardinal outside, fledged but still soliciting feeding from adult male (young still has black bill.)
  • 23:22:02: Once more it's after midnight. Day's word quota got done, likewise week's quota, but sleep quota? Not so much. Good scenes, though.
  • 23:24:32: Did get critical items in the mail, at least, thanks to husband's doing the mail run twice.

You have just given me a very surreal moment, with the young cardinal. We don't have them over here in the UK, so my first picture was not of a bird, but of a very small cleric begging for food.

Re annoying beeps

I'm sure someone else has already answered this, but just in case. Go to the control panel, then select sound. Choose the 'sounds' tab on that window, and use the dropdown menu under 'sound scheme' to select 'no sounds'. Click on the Apply button, then click OK. And Bob's your uncle!

Re: Re annoying beeps

That might not be entirely best, depending on the scheme - it sounds like what might be best is just to eliminate that one sound from the program? Depending on what client you are using (gmail, outlook, etc) there are options in the programs themselves that will turn off incoming mail notification sounds.

If you're on a desktop computer, you could try plugging the speakers into the headphone jack in the front of the CD-ROM drive. I usually run computers with sound muted, or even on systems with no speakers installed, so learned that trick long ago.

Don't have speakers--use headphones only. This computer has had its sound hooked up only a couple of weeks (for years it was not allowed out on the internet or to make any sounds at all.)

Got it fixed, though. Thanks.

Depending on your email client

Usually each email client has the option to turn sound on and of for that program. In Thunderbird for instance you click Tools...Options and select the general tab. The option to turn of the sound is right there.
Yours may have a different sequence but the same general idea.

Re: Depending on your email client

Yes, as I said, it's fixed now. Thanks.
