Conan the Librarian X is a prank app in which Conan tells you to shut up when the incoming sound on your built in microphone reaches certain levels.

seems rather too sensitive on my mac - tells me to be quiet every time i even press a key. Please increase the volume level needed to trigger Arnold - then it will be more useful.

This is what you need to do, taken from the developer's website where it is easily found because it is in boldface type:

"If Conan is too sensitive to sounds, try lowering the Input Volume in your System Preferences (under Sound->Input)."

Just a note to those who don't like to use the terminal if they can help it - this program can also be closed using the activity monitor.
Just select it in the list, click Quit Process (upper left), and confirm your choice in the resulting dialog box.

This an amazingly funny little app. My wife and I got laughing so hard that we both ached. It's one of those things that's so silly, so stupid that it just keeps building. You can't believe you're lauging at it, but you can't stop either.

The best things in life are free. Nothing wrong with the occassional time-waster. Thumbs-up to Conan the Librarian, and a hearty "thanks" to the Creator.

If you need to kill the application because your life is being threatened, open up a Terminal window and type in the following command: killall QUIT "Conan The Librarian"
