Are you using Visual Studio and your solutions are taking longer than 10s to build? Why not put those 10s to good use and do something other than stare emptily at your poorly decorated office? Maybe you are worried that your build will finish before you expect it to and you don't want to lose precious time? You don't have to worry about this anymore thanks to what I found today! You can now feel free to peruse a few blog posts while Visual Studio is building!  [insert witty comment about how men have difficulty multi-tasking here]. 

Robert Robins posted this on his blog recently and I didn't even know it existed! You can configure VS.NET build sounds that information you where the build is done!

Go to the Control Panel, Sound and Audio Devices, Sounds Tab, Microsoft Visual Studio, and configure the sounds you'd like to play when the build succeeds/fails. LavaBlast is not responsible for what your coworkers do to you after configuring Pee-wee Herman or a bomb siren as your default sounds.

Happy coding!
