Computer Startup/Shutdown Music

Wed Feb 28, 2001 4:08 pm

We had wallpapers so I thought what about music? Mine on startup is the "Cathay Pacific Song" and on shutdown is "Whoop Whoop Pull Up!" What's your music?

I used to have the Rolling Stones "Start Me Up!" for startup, and Archie Bunker's EDITH WILL YOU STIFLE! for a shutdown. I took all system sounds off because it speeds the computer up alot (a PIII 500).

Start up: the Manics singing, "If you tolerate this, then your children will be next....."

Shut down music: Oasis singing "There's no need to say you're sorry, good bye i'm going home."

Currently I don't have a startup or shutdown sound, but there is one I am DYING to get. It is the ADP Charles De Gaulle airport musical tone that they make on the PA before announcements. I can't find it anywhere. Does anyone else know what I'm talking about?

My start up used to be the Dialogue from the Simpsons episode "Homer Simpson vs. New York City"
Homer: "What do you have to drink?"
Kalab Kalash guy: "Mountain Dew or Crab Juice"
Homer: "Bleecckk, ewww shheesshh! I'll take the Crab Juice!"

At home:
Startup- "We are the Borg. Lower your sheilds and surrender your ships. We will add your biological and technological distinctiveness to our own. Your culture will adapt to service us. Resistance is futile." (The Borg from "Star Trek:The Next Generation")
Shutdown- "They invade our space and we fall back. They assimilate entire worlds and we fall back. Not again. The line must be drawn here; this far, no farther!" (Patrick Stewart from "Star Trek:First Contact)

At work:
Startup- "No time for that now, the computer's starting!" (Homer Simpson)
Shutdown- "Thank you, come again!" (Apu)

Ko sme da izlazi iz vindousa a da mene ne pita
which translated means
Who dares to exit Windows without asking me

Is anyone has links where I can download aircraft-related sounds for Windows ?
I have lot of car-related, but nothing like communication w/ tower or take-off sound.

You can send them by e-mail at [email protected]

Thanks !
