BelchX is a port of an old System 7 extension for the Mac, called Belch. BelchX is an invisible application that will cause your Mac to have a case of indigestion: it lets out a nasty belch every once in a while. Put it on your friends' Maces, and they will love you for it.

If you wish to quit BelchX, simply open up a Terminal window and type:

killall QUIT "Belch"

If that doesn't work, simply choose "Log Out" from the Apple menu, then log back in.

What's New

Version 1.2: Frequency and odds of gas event can now be twiddled via the command line for added aggravation. Read the Readme file for instructions. Updates for this app are now complete.

Requirements

Mac OS X 10.2 or later

This man's software is the greatest thing since the unveiling of Janet Jackson's right breast! Why doesn't Apple hire him or at least purchase his apps for bundling with new systems "Welcome to OS X... *belch*"?

We need more programmers like him. There are a zillion crappy iTunes control clones or safari mod clones or clocks, alerts, notepads, yadda, yadda.

However, there is only 1 BelchX, only 1 MacBarfX, only 1 Poop Alerts, 1 Conan the Librarian X, 1 EarthquakeX, 1 Skwonk! and 1 BinClocken. No clones, no copys and nobody else filling this peculiarly vacant software crevasse. Just this one man.
For this I thank you, Mr. Schilling... thank you.

To replace the sound file with one of your own choosing (must be aif format and be named Belch.aiff) simply open the package with the contextual menu "Show Package Contents" in the Finder (control click on the app icon), navigate to the Resources folder and replace the sound file before loading the app into memory. So, no more whining about how there is no Fart.app program with which to astound your friends!

I remember using the syst 7 version on a teachers machine in grade school... she had no clue on how to work her machine and actually called the schools network admin complaining that her computer was burping and she couldn't stop it... it was classic!

Come on people it's nostalgic good clean fun! Yes it is pretty mindless and useless, but that is exactly the point. Install it on a friends computer - preferably someone who is rather clueless about computers in general. Thanks for a bit of the past. Now all we need is Oscar the Grouch to pop out of the OSX Dock Trash bin, singing "I love trash, I love it because it's trash", and I will be ALL set!! ; )

Come on, not everything has to be a productivity wonder. Do you have friends? Put this on their computer while they're away. It's fun.

Fun - providing enjoyment; pleasantly entertaining. (WordNet)
