If a Computer Beeps and There is No One Around...

If a Computer Beeps and There is No One Around...:
A supposedly actual bug report allegedly from someone at Microsoft.

"Visual C++ makes an audible signal when a build completes. When no
developer is in the room, this signal doesn't make a sound. To reproduce:

1) Start a build.
2) Leave the room.
3) Note that the chime does not make a sound.

We should find a way to make the build bell make a sound even if nobody
is there to hear it.

This philosophical issue may need program management's attention before
being resolved."
