Hi Bleepers,

Hopefully this question makes sense. I just downloaded the Echophon add-on for Firefox to my Windows XP pro computer. (among other things echophon lets you know when new tweets come in on twitter). The add-on is working fine.

I would like to include the sound notification option, that lets me know when a new tweet comes in. Apparently I need to designate a .wav file. Cannot find where they are located in my hard drive.

Also, for those using Echophon on their computer, any other tips are welcome!

Thanks!!!

Use Search/All files and folders and give *.wav for All or part of the filename.

Platypus--Thank you!!! Worked perfectly. I only had one .wav file, a strange little thing of a gunshot or something, but it is adequate for my needs at present and working!!!

Are there other places to download .wav files? I wouldn't mind having a notification sound that was was a bit more musical-beeping sounding.

Thanks again!!! Firetooth

In XP Home, most of mine are located at:

C:\WINDOWS\Media
C:\Program Files\Messenger
C:\Program Files\Windows NT\Pinball
C:\WINDOWS\ServicePackFiles\i386
C:\WINDOWS\system32\dllcache (a hidden file)
C:\WINDOWS\Help\Tours\WindowsMediaPlayer\Audio\Wav

This is just a search of System Folders, and Sub-folders.
If you did a search of all files, you would likely find more, since just about every program has sounds associated with it.

I also recommend thefreesite for email - I can't remember how many years I've used them for my email, but in all that time maybe 3 spam emails have appeared.
