    If you turn the overall sound control down, the startup is also turned down, but then you have to turn the sounds up again to listen to whatever you're listening to. Before you turn the computer off, you then have to turn the sound down again.



    This is a real pain. I can't speak for anyone else, but I don't always remember to do this. So, either the system sound is loud because I was listening to something before, or the sound is too low because I had remembered to turn it down before turning the machine off (though I do sometimes leave it on for extended periods).



    It would be nice if they had a control that would adjust the system sound so that the general sound setting had NOTHING to do with it. So that however we set it, the sound adjustment on the menu bar, for example, wouldn't re-adjust it as well.



    That way, no matter what we did elsewhere, it wouldn't change unexpectedly.




    yeah, i would agree here, that sums up the current challenges with the startup sound, and some very distinct usability issues (which apple normally excels in but we mac "zealots" know better)

    Without describing the new boot chime, sources quipped that it "doesn't sound anything like the 'Intel Inside' chime heard in most of the chip maker's media advertisements.

    I usually have a sense of humor, but the joke seemed a little bit... bad. I thought we were past thinking that it was the Intel sound, and then someone's like, "Hey, guys! OMG, this is the sound: Link... INTEL!!!!!"



    IDK.

    EDIT: I don't know.

    It wasn't the greatest joke, but I think it was pretty clear that aegisdesign was either an utter moron (unlikely) or was just trying to be funny.

    I did mention earlier on that he'd opened a can of worms. I assumed this comment would have stopped conversation about the Intel sound but unfortunately not.

    If you split lines, there will be a thousand screaming users whose scripts don't work. Heh.



    OK, moving this post to Mac OS.

    Point, but you could use the backslash to avoid that.



    E.g.

    Code:


    long-line-of-code\\

    that-goes-on-here







    Common shells recognize that.
