in reply to One-liner .sig

For those of us on non-/dev/dsp supported systems, anyone care to comment as to what the sound is? Is it just a sine wave, as cogent suggests but doesn't affirm? Is it just a bleep? Is it something clever? I presume it's the sine wave, but didn't see an affirmation from anyone.

    Ah, sorry. It's actually fourteen fairly short (on my system, at least) beeps of random pitch. I presume that the sine waves are the (very low-level) way of making the sound wave for each beep, but that's a guess, as I don't really know how /dev/dsp works.

    I could probably make a wav, given enough time...

      That would me moderately frightening if you could cause it to speak your name. Granted, it would no longer be a One-Liner .sig. =]

      -marius

        Omigod. That would be *so* *much* *more* than frightening.

        But I don't think "I was hacking with the pack function so that I could send /dev/dsp the raw data to speak my name" counts as a valid sick day excuse, so I really oughtta just go to sleep, now.

        But I won't, of course.

        I consider it semi-breaking the rules but a post that makes me laugh out loud in the middle of the night deserves a ++ =)
