[02:07:52] <Bytram> http://www.gargaro.com
[02:09:12] * cmn32480 wishes he coudl figure otu how he managed to get the channel set up to ding on an editorial message... and a different sound for when he gets nick'd
[02:10:34] <Bytram> hmmm, what chat program?
[02:10:41] <cmn32480> hexchat for windows
[02:11:07] <Bytram> same here.
[02:11:30] <Bytram> I set it up long ago and pretty much haven't changed anything since then
[02:11:36] <cmn32480> right
[02:11:46] <cmn32480> I didn't either until I lost that bit of config when I updated
[02:11:46] <Bytram> afaicr, I only had the one 'tone'
[02:11:54] <Bytram> backups?
[02:12:23] <Bytram> ummm, what do you mean by 'editorial message'
[02:12:27] <cmn32480> I swear I had a generic "ding" for messages in #editorial, and a whistle for when I get pinged
[02:12:37] <Bytram> cmn32480: is this ia ping?
[02:12:44] <cmn32480> yes
[02:12:52] <cmn32480> but that didn't ding me... WTF???
[02:13:13] <Bytram> cmn32480: here is a another test
[02:13:19] <Bytram> are your speakers on?
[02:13:22] <cmn32480> yes
[02:13:29] <cmn32480> because I cna play Youtube...
[02:13:33] <cmn32480> that was the first thing I checked
[02:13:37] <Bytram> hrm
[02:13:57] <Bytram> iirc, there were different 'channels' that one could independently control sound levels on
[02:14:10] <cmn32480> nothign is muted
[02:14:27] <Bytram> you know what I mean? ISTR htere were about 5 sliders or so
[02:14:35] <cmn32480> uh huh
[02:14:42] <Bytram> as well as a master volume one
[02:14:44] <Bytram> k
[02:15:00] <cmn32480> I'm looking at it right now... hexchat isn't listed as one of the apps. it gets controlled by the master
[02:15:53] <cmn32480> I'm not gonna worry 'bout it.
[02:16:06] <cmn32480> I'm still too tired from yesterday to screw with it tongiht
[02:16:29] <Bytram> cmn32480: safer that way, too.
