One of the very valuable features of CruiseControl.Net is the CCTray client that sits in your system tray and gives both visual and audio confirmations of build status. Remember to rotate those sound files every so often because they’ll get awfully old. My colleague has had Darth Vader intoning “Impressive” after each successful build for better than 9 months now and it’s not that cute anymore. Do a service to yourself and rotate your CCTray sounds. Just for fun mine at the moment is:
- Success – “Yeah, baby!” from Austin Powers. Gonna get old real quick though
- Failure – “Freakin’ Idiot” from Napolean Dynamite
- Fixed – “It’s a 106 miles… and we’re wearing sunglasses”
- Still Broken – “Miss it Noonan! Mmmmmiss!”
I’ve already been through Simpsons sounds, Star Wars quotes, “No Soup for You!,” Army of Darkness quotes, Ferris Bueller, and even Big Trouble in Little China this year.
