Random learnings and other thoughts from an unashamed geek


| Comments

I like IBM. I have even visited them a couple of times if you look at my homepage. Well, whilst reading LifeHacker, I saw a link to the following article on the IBM website: Whistle while you work to run commands on your computer. Well, the title sounded like fun so I read on a little. They say it may take around an hour to set up, so perhaps I will do it on a weekend. What made me smile was the following excerpt:

“Note that you will have to be running this program in a relatively noise-free environment, so plug in your headphones and make sure your CD drive is spun down. If your laptop’s battery is on fire, try unplugging the smoke detector before running this program.”

I might try and stick more subtle humour like this into the stuff I make for Brain Bakery.
