Default prime95 sound

Is it true that prime95 does a sound if a new Mersenne is found ? I would be curious to listen to it (without waiting to find a new Mersenne prime ... )

Thanks

Well, use a smaller one, not the last one found.

The real small ones don't work, IIRC. Maybe try one around M20.

Go to an MS-DOS Window. Type repeated ^G (Ctrl+G), then hit return. You've emulated prime95's "sophisticated" sound algorithm.

Does this work with command prompt in Windows XP? (DOS is no longer existant in newer Windows pcs). I tried the command and it made a sound for each time I typed in CtrlG but it wasn't anything I would call pleasant.

CTRL-G is the standard ASCII "bell" command; back in the day of teletypes, it activated a physical bell. Nowadays it generally causes a single beep from the system speaker, but it varies in character from system to system. It is the lowest common denominator for audible alerts; not pretty but essentially universally available.

I wonder how long it will take until you can download it as a ringtone...

I tried a large prime long time ago and remembered it differently (a bit faster and lower frequency?)

I just noticed that the lltesting is stopping while the noise is on. But that will not happen often.
Anyway, the variable 'SilentVictory' sounds cool.


edit: typos.

That's almost the exact sound one of my computers was making last night.

Too bad it was the CPU overheat alarm after the mounting bracket broke on the CPU fan.
