Ok, this is an embarrassing problem. I'm using AVR Studio 6.1 beta (6.1.2440), and about every 5-10 times I build my solution, the Benny Hill chase music starts playing!

I have visual studio 2010, and it doesn't do it.

I've googled for viruses, but found nothing. Windows defender found nothing. (My box is pretty well locked down - I don't run as administrator).

It seemed to start happening after I installed the LUFA via the gallery - this may be a coincidence.

Have I found an easter egg? Can it be turned off?

Bahaha, working late?

Tools->Options, Extensions->LUFA Library, disable Easter Egg.

You really did this, Dean?

I'm 50 percent laughing with convulsions, 50 percent detesting such a move.

Well, it's only a (theoretical) 5% chance of triggering it, after 5PM when enabled....

I love easter eggs but they probably need to remain hidden a bit deeper - like only on every 3rd Tuesday in a month that contains the letter R.

(some confirmation to the user that it's intentional and not a virus may be an idea too Wink)

The egg is not excaclty hidden if you look at the package options, but I guess that people seldom venture into the options dialog Razz

Still, better than the first test with "let's just play it one in five" Razz

It was really frustrating. Most of my builds were really short, so I'd only get the first note. But then a full build played most of the tune.

I'm glad it wasn't a virus!

Ok ok, I'll turn it off in the next release, I've had my fun now.

What kind of virus would hook the Atmel Studio build events, and play a looped version of Yackety Sax?

That'd be high on my list if I was into writing virii! Smile

I'm damned impressed how quickly you figured it out - I just wanted those who worked late to feel like they're the Atmel web team for a day, no harm intended.

In any case, I've reduced the Yackety Sax constant, added a 45 minute lockout and added a status bar message to make it obvious how to turn it off. My hope is to brighten people's long days with a bit of whimsicality, not ruin them.

Thinking about it, that was so EVIL! Considering it was designed to play randomly after 5pm, I assume you were trying to torment poor engineers working back late at night!

So, I'm obliged to ask...

What's next? Sharks with frikin lasers attached to their heads?

No, I suspect that this is simply a precursor to letting the Atmel Web Team roam freely across The Internet. We're doomed..

I'll have to turn my sound ON to check this out, I would have never happened to me as sounds are always OFF.

Then be careful John, as there may be a lot more sound coming from your system then you would expect.

Had a real big laugh about this thread though. Super Dean

Scene: Lunch/coffe-room at work. I've been struggling with InstallShield (a software invented by the devil himself) all moning and need another shot. Behind me two engineers sit and talk about some job matter, when a phone belonging to one of them goes off.

Guess what ring signal it was..

The two enginers look at me with baffled faces when I burst into laughter.

I need to get that "Yakety Sax" into one of my Spotify play lists.

I hate you!!! I figured the music was a sign of the stress corrupting my mind, so I spent a lot of money in psychotherapies, and even joined the AA ("Atmelist Anonymous") support Group.

I guess it's nearly time for a new release - and I suppose the next version should have the Easter Egg turned off by default. Apparently it kept triggering at a few Atmel Tech on Tour events to the bemusement of the attending FAEs, so I've had my fun.

Too bad it didn't happen in Bologna!
Domenico is always very serious and professional, he could benefit from a good laugh Wink
