    Rechiming is when you shut down the computer, then turn on again while holding down the command, option plus the p and r keys. It will then shut down and chime again, thus chiming twice. This is done whenever things are not "acting" right. Doing this usually fixes the problem. I guess it is a way of rebooting twice.

    This is called resetting the PRAM. Not rechiming. And yes, you can do this as many times as you want. I have held down these buttons so that it makes the chime sound 5 times in a row.

    I'd hardly call it OCD. I had no idea what rechiming was either.
