Have you tried simply
? I have had mixed results with it but I think it usually works.
beep is a little bit dull… on the mac you can also just use 'say' from 'standard additions'…
say "Mark you stupid Muppet" using "Bad News" volume 1
'play sound' is also fun for adding audio…
Sorry I don't know how I would humour myself if I were on a PC…
alert( $.global.reflect.methods );
You can also check this:
alert( 'beep' in $.global ); // => true
alert( typeof beep ); // => function
What is fun is that the previous lines also play the beep, although the function is not explicitly invoked! [EDIT: probably because the alert() function itself runs a beep!]
Another fact is that beep() triggers a Windows sound event (Asterisk) which is defaultly associated to the "Windows Error.wav" file, but this depends on your "Sound" Settings (Control Panel > Sounds).
Also note that in some Windows installation, sounds may be totally disabled, so that beep() is mute.
Thank you, guys.
