Startup Noise

Anyone know where I can find a .wav of the noise of an old computer booting up? The distinctive disk-drive grunt, followed by the beeps?

Because it's far too late for most sane people on a weeknight, I'm both dreadfully bored and trying to be productive. Thus, I've somehow decided that tricking out my computer the way I want it is productive, even though I should be doing more sorting and packing.

Also,
Go to your info page and find the seventh name listed on your friends list. Go to their info page.
Find the seventh name on their friends list. Repeat until you are seven LJs from your own. (If you come across someone who doesn't have seven friends or the seventh friend is a journal you have already visited on this trip, randomly pick another name and continue).

Now, use the info page and recent entries of that 7th LJ to answer the following questions:
1)What is the title of this journal (NOT the user name)?
2)How many communities does this person belong to?
3)List any interests you share in common with this user.
4)List any friends you have in common with this user.
5)Where does this user live?
6)What is the seventh sentence in this user's most recent journal entry?
7)What is the first sentence in this user's seventh most recent journal entry?


Paste these instructions and your answers in your own journal.
The seventh was azurelettuce, so it started off weird. I jumped around a lot...

1) I <3 nerds
2) 20 communities
3) the user has no listed interests
4) we have no friends in common.
5) Atlanta, Georgia.
6 & 7) The only sentence in the only visible entry is "This journal is friends only."
Gone away, gone ahead,
Echoes roll unanswered.
Empty, open, dusty, dead.
Why have all the Weyrfolk fled?

Where have dragons gone together
Leaving weyrs to wind and weather,
Setting herdbeasts free of tether;
Gone, our safeguards, gone, but whither?

Have they flown to some new weyr
Where cruel Threads some others fear?
Are they worlds away from here?
Why, oh why the empty weyr?
