Heres a question thats a little left field. Is it possible to get a program on my pc so that when I turn it on it says "Good morning (name)" like HAL in the Stanley Kubrick film "2001 A Space Oddysey"?
You sad person!!! I doubt there is any software out there at the moment that will say that unless you make your own recording and have set to come on with your first action. See windows Media sounds for that..
have a search for wav files here: click here and click here for starters - you might well find it there. Or do a Google on 2001 + wav - I'm sure you'll find what you're looking for, as well as loads you're not.
Once you've got the file, put it in the Media folder (C:\windows\media) then open sounds and properties in the control panel, find "startup" and browse for the wav file.
Djohn if you have your speakers on AOL still hase Connie or an alternative saying "welcome to aol" and "you have e-mail" also when logging off there is a voice very much Joanna Lumley that says "goodbye"
