   Discussion: Personalizing your computer

Do you personalize your computer or do you use the sounds and images that came with it?

I have pretty much set up a Doctor Who Theme.
  • Tardis Noise when Windows starts
  • Dr Who Theme when Windows shuts down
  • TARDIS and Dalek busy pointers

I need to get some icons.

My change my wallpaper every few days. I usually take it from The Astronomy Picture of the Day.

When I get new mail Seinfeld says, "What's email."

I do, to a certain extent.
-A clip of Früvous doing "I've Gotta Get A Message To You" when I get mail
-In iChat, the Michigan Militia riff when I get a new IM

My wallpaper changes a lot. It's usually a digital photo I've taken at some point, but sometimes it's from somewhere else. Right now, it's this, from camp.

How do you put soud clips to when particular things happen?

assuming you have a Windows XP machine...

It's Control Panel --> Sounds and Audio Devices --> Sounds

Then you can pick various sound files to go with each event. Note that the files have to be wav files. I tend to turn off the sound for most events cause I get freaked out easily by strange noises. *twitch*

And thanks for the Sondheim earworm. :P

...so my machine is blissfully silent. I change my wallpaper, but that's about it.

amen.

I used to set custom sounds... etc... but I found that they'd start to annoy the hell out of me after approx 1 week.

So now I just disable more and more sounds.
I think the only thing I have is a single tone for new email.

I already answered above re: sounds... but.... I do definitely love choosing desktops.

I generally use something off Digital Blasphemy unless I find something better. Currently on my primary home computer it's a pic that ellen took..... and my work computer it's a sunset pic that I took.
