Close encounters of the Rexx kind

Rexx and PPWizardApologies for the cheesy post title. Anyway, I rather dislike the Windows startup sounds so I decided to use a bit of Rexx to make things interesting.

1st of all, have a look at the video of Windows startup and shutdown sounds. Warning: very dull.

My super simple code is below.

 
SLEEP(45)
BEEP(392,600)
BEEP(440,600)
BEEP(349,600)
BEEP(174,750)
BEEP(261,1200)

I saved the code as sort-of-close-encounters.rex and added it to my startup folder. When I start my PC, I have a series of beeps coming out of its internal speaker which (slightly) resembles the tune from Close Encounters of the Third Kind.

The SLEEP(45) just gives my PC a bit of time to wake up, it's a bit on the old side. What larks, eh? ;)
