    Unanswered: The Ads with the sound effects might give me a heart attack

    I like this forum but recently I have noticed they are running ads with sound effects.

    I like a lot of programmers I know listen to music through their computer with headphones on all day. Whenever one of those adds fire off it about scares the BeJesus of me and comes through louder than the music. I am playing with my settings but I each time I find one that kills the sound effects it kills the music too.

    Starting to make me mad.

But those that will not break it kills. It kills the very good and the very gentle and the very brave impartially. If you are none of these you can be sure it will kill you too but there will be no special hurry.” Earnest Hemingway, A Farewell To Arms.

    At least add a volume control (and start at < 10% of the maximum volume) and a mute button - I max (no pun intended) my speaker volume so that I don't have to switch back and forth b/w Media Player and my system volume.

    I just had to change my Depends, again. While reading this thread, no less!

    While no two audio drivers seem to have the same controls, I'd suggest something like what I've attached.

    I am playing CDs through windows media player and when I hit the mute on the Wave widget the sound on the CD gets killed.

    I was'nt really looking for help. It was more of a protest. I hate macromedia flash. Hate it. I do like macromedia Homesite though.
