[vox-tech] beeping linux (and star trek)

a long time ago, someone had asked "how do i turn beeping off on linux".

i answered that you can turn beeping under vi off by set noerrorbells, but
that it never seemed to work (for me, at least).

now, i have a real answer.  one that works!  :-)

        xset b off

will turn off all beeping under X.  if you man xset, you'll see that you can
even change the volume of the beeping!

on a related note, i've found that you can turn off the computer's fan noise by:

        xset f off

and your fan will operate in complete silence...


ps- has anyone noticed that STDS9 has been replaced by next generation on fox
at 11:30.   as a whole, STNG was good, but not great.  luckily, they've only
been showing the good episodes so far...
