Idea: the relay's web page would make a boop sound for every new relayed message. The sound of the fediverse
@Gargron that would be like a constant stream of boops at some point XD
@InspectorCaracal @Gargron *boop*
@InspectorCaracal @Gargron make it the Sosumi sound to replicate the classic "crashed Mac" effect
@Gargron it would be a relentless perma-booptone
@Gargron I'd rather prefer Gilfoyle's Bitcoin alert.
@wonderfall Yes, but also no
Slightly different pitch per origin domain?
@Gargron whale noises? 🐳
@Gargron You know someone will take it upon themselves to write a midi player if you do that 😛
@Gargron hash domain name and add a whole synthesizer with parameters seeded with the entropy hehe
@Gargron duration based on length, pitch also varies with user name.
@Gargron make sure to place the random sounds on a scale/chord, or it's going to be a cacophony like Crazy Bus
@Gargron Actually, something like taht exists for Wikipedia: http://listen.hatnote.com/
Makes a sound for every Wikipedia edit – in different variations. Sounds very nice IMHO.
@gargron reminds me of https://github.com/debugger22/Github-audio, which is sadly down now. https://youtu.be/iei3X6NXLXY
@Gargron Maybe the pitch could be changed by using the length of the toot while the loudness could be changed by the length of the user id
