• zapping noises

    From Alexander Koryagin@2:221/6 to All on Thu Sep 13 09:14:58 2018
    He All!

    A relative of mine from the US send me a book he read when he was a boy, knowing that I like reading English books. The book is about a girl who is a hypnotist. When she started to hypnotize she felt...

    "... Her mind felt slightly fizzy, and tiny zapping noises seemed to pop just inside her ears."

    Can you explain to me what "tiny zapping noises" are? ;)

    Bye, all!

    Try this web site: http://soundbible.com/335-Electric-Shock-Zap.html

    There are a lot of variations on this sound, many of shorter duration and less volume, but I think it will give you the idea.

    Odd - works for me -- try this one:

    http://soundbible.com/suggest.php?q=electric-shock-zap&x=0&y=0

    Failing that, try http://soundbible.com and then type electric-shock-zap into the search box?

    I tried it with two different providers.

    Odd. "host soundbible.com" says the IP is 65.181.113.249. Maybe that will work for you?

    How very strange -- perhaps a vpn to a location outside Russia?

    I've got this message (in translation from Russian): "the web page http://65.181.113.249/ can't be accessed, perhaps it temporally inaccessible or
    moved to another URL".

    I tried even TOR - the result the same. 8-(

    Maybe we see a new trend when URL is restricted for some copyright reason.

    Ah! Tor browser has helped after all! I listened what I wanted to. I suspect it
    can be connected with the fight with Telegram messenger that is going on in Russia. Trying to shut down Telegraph they block many (millions of) URLs Telegram could use and sometimes innocent sites become inaccessible.

    I'm glad you solved it -- now tell me, what is Telegram, and why is there a fight about it?

    If you have the Internet on your smart phone you can install a Telegram messenger program. It allows to communicate freely with other Telegram users using an encrypted protocol. The FSB (the Federal Security Service) demanded from the owner of Telegram to pass the decrypting keys to it so that the FSB could control the Telegram messages on the ground of fighting with terrorism. Telegram had refused and it was blocked. The messenger is popular in Russia, and it constantly invents ways to go around the blocking, frequently changing its IPs etc.

    Interesting, thanks! It doesn't exist here, as far as I know. We have several other apps that will do that -- Whatsapp comes to mind. So far, no agencies have seriously attempted to control them.
