This reminds me, I wish I could find a good foghorn to download for computer sounds. It would remind me of my boyhood in Seattle, when I would walk to school through pea soup fog off Elliot Bay. But last time I looked all I got was some chicken dialogue from the cartoon character Foghorn Leghorn.

Evan,

That one is a doozy, sends chills up my spine. Now all I have to do is figure out how to specify this as a start-up sound for my Mac. Unlike a PC, this may not be possible.

I don't remember where it was on the sound but when it was just right you could hear, Point No Point, Mukelteo, West point, and Alki.

I have been to all of those and more. Thanks for the remembering.

For what its worth, whislt a funny clip, the ship would have sounded off three astern anyway had the truck not been there, standard deal three short blasts to signify they are going astern, at least it is over here, so its possible im wrong but still...

I lived in Magnolia, so heard the West Point lighthouse horn. A lot of ships in the harbor joined in the chorus.

There is nothing like being in Singapore harbor at midnight on New Years Eve.

A hint for using Google; In order to filter out unwanted hits such as Foghorn Leghorn just put a minus sign in front of the unwanted keyword: -leghorn

Caps never matter on google either. Using a minus sign means that no pages will be returned that contain the keyword.

If you want pages that must contain a particular word then preceed it with a + symbol. If you want a particular phrase then "put it in quotes". You can add these rules as well such as -"foghorn leghorn".

A mob of sheep? You've got us curious.

[edit] Ah yes, I see now your new thread. The bellbird -- doesn't get much nicer than that.

I wonder if any of these are downloadable as ringtones?

I just added Evan's two-tone foghorn to my camera, a Canon G9. Like many P&S cameras, the G9 has a sound recorder. Any sound it records can be used as one of the camera's functional sounds -- I use if for startup.

I am astounded at the myriad capabilities of the chip in the G9. Are these camera chips the most complicated chips that have ever been made?
