I'm an Australian developer (working overseas) currently working as a Delphi consultant. Prior to that I worked for eight years for a marine science software company, working on underwater visualisation and analysis software in C++. My day-to-day working language is now Delphi, which I've used since version 1 in 1995 (when I would have been, what, 12...)

I started programming on a BBC Master microcomputer (mode 2! So many colours!) before moving to Turbo Pascal for DOS, and then Delphi. My hobby languages these days are C++ and Objective C.

comment MacBook Pro “clicking” while muted when showing a message dialog in Windows on Parallels - what's happening?
Any idea why it's audible only when on battery, though? Is the sound card permanently on when not on battery, perhaps? I've never heard the pops before, including when turning the laptop on, which presumably powers up the sound card too...

Nice - that makes sense!

Thanks. I'll contact them too. It is bizarre that a VM issue can cause sound output on a supposedly muted machine... but not impossible ;)

Interesting! Do you have a link to the Parallels bug knowledgebase or similar, please?

It has a SSD. I don't think it's a hard drive click.

Rewrote question to remove original question - too misleading, now that I've narrowed it to other circumstances
