Make your computer sound like those in movies

You must have noticed computers in movies keep making weird beeps and sounds whenever the actor is using the keyboard or hacking into the mainframe. Thanks to Nullsoft (the makers of Winamp), you can replicate these sounds on your computer.


The software called Nullsoft Beep emits important sounding geeky little beeps whenever you use the keyboard or the screen updates. It also makes a low hum on the speaker that varies in intensity depending on the CPU load. Aside from making your computer sound important, these beeps makes an interesting feedback system on the CPU load. I’m loving this application.

Timeline is also available for Facebook Pages that people can use to promote their website or business or event. Although you can change the cover photo as often as you like, it’s meant to be static – something which you design and leave it for at least a few weeks or months like a redesigned website. However, there are times when you may want to change the cover photo frequently and periodically to match event dates or some special promotion that you are running or plan to run.
