Our business needs us to stay online always and make ourselves available to our clients . But at home , it may not possible to sit in front of computer and wait for the customers to buzz . So my requirements for gtalk were ,
One I wanted it to never go idle ,So that my clients will know that I am available and the second, I want the Gtalk chat alert sound more louder so that I can hear it from all corners of my home.
To stay always available on Gtalk , I found a small application called gAlwaysidle (http://www.galwaysidle.com , I dont know why their site is down now) . You just need to run the application and right click on gtalk icon on taskbar and select the option wether you want to keep gtalk always idle or never idle .
Now , my second requirement is changing the default chat alert sound .
I downloaded resource tuner trail version from http://www.restuner.com/download.htm and opened Gtalk.exe application with it .
Now i could change few things in gtalk like default icons and default dialogs .
I selected 121 wave file under wave directory and selected edit resource from where I can replace it with my custom sound file ( before editing the file I did backup the file by clicking on Save Resource As).
