You know you're nerdy when you got a hand-me-down PC and not only have you set it up headless to be accessed over SSH to take accurate benchmark measurements with, you're wondering how difficult it would be to get the `beep` command to replicate PC Speaker sound effects from childhood DOS games to signal success/failure on completion.

So far, all I've managed to my own satisfaction is getting it to play the first measure of Dies Irae to signal a nonzero exit code.

If anyone wants that, here it is in shell script:

for X in 175 165 175 147 165 131 147 147; do beep -l 600 -f "$X"; done
