Sorry I couldn't reply to this earlier. I've been having a sort of a vacation, 
I really needed a rest off my PC.

Thank you very much. Today I got the CVS digest newsletter and the new sounds 
seem to have gotten into the KDE finally. I don't know who exactly is 
responsible for this long-awaited work. Scott, was that you? ;-) (I mean 
Scott Wheeler).

I agree. This week I am back to studio work, and I will try to create a better 
beep sound.

Yes, this was my mistake in naming. Fixed ;-)

As I said, this week I plan polishing the sound set so it gets into KDE 3.3 RC 
1 (?). Thanks again for your comments and good luck!
