First, let's explain what I am on about. That little 'plink' noise you get by default when some one posts a message at you on chat. I HATE it with a passion! At first I was ok with the noise, as I could simply disable it and problem solved.
Except it's not solved, it is merely put aside for a while. If I use another computer, or if the cookie runs out, the bane of chat returns with it's shrill annoying chime.
Why is this setting not a user account setting? Why is it done as some shoddy cookie based setting that does not carry from one machine to another and is reset regularly? There is no need for this rage to be induced every month!
