i currently use the genie effect for my dock, however somewhere along the line, i have lost the sound effect that went along with the opening and closing the window (genie-style)
what can i do to fix this?
That sound was from your subconscious. Whatever your mind depicts pure joy as, you heard. As you got used to opening apps, the joy subsided a bit. Try learning a fun new program or game, and the sound will return. If that doesn't work, buy 2 cinema displays and call me in the morning.
