background info: Aware of the decline of pop-up window art caused by 
the widespread use of pop-up blockers* (Windows XP has even default a 
pop-up blocker installed) Peter luining developed a piece of 
standalone software that auto rotates 100 pop-up windows. To give the 
program a special touch Luining programmed it so that it uses the 
internal speaker on the PC Motherboard to make a beep every time a 
window pops up. In other words no soundcard is needed to enjoy the 
sound of this piece.

*A pop-up blocker (sometimes called a pop-up killer) is a program 
that prevents pop-ups from displaying in a user's Web browser. 
Pop-ups are amongst others used by advertising agencies to display 
advertisements. On the more aggressive side pop-ups are used to force 
people into downloading spyware. The majority of web users experience 
pop-ups as extremely annoying.
