[chuck-users] Stop Beeping at Me

Hey All,

Computers beep by default when you make a mistake. This sucks in a  

I have recently installed Mac10.4.  When I turn off the system volume  
in the system preferences the terminal will still beep at me. Also  
vim beeps at me. Here are a few things I did to stop the beeping.


In window settings in the Terminal menu there is now a tab for  
emulation where the audible bell option lies. Unclick this little  
monster to make your shell stop beeping.


In your .vimrc file I had to put  set noerrorbells in order to stop  
the beeping.

I know that this is different in Linux to get bash to stop. What  
about windows? Emacs?

I am sure a lot of you will have figured most of this out but it  
should help that we don't have to hear nasty system sounds at ChucK  
shows in the future.
