ResEdit, I'm a Lefty, and are "Events" sounds enabled?
My colored Fitaly is just me playing around with editing the bitmaps in the PocketFitaly.dll file using PE Resource Editor and Resource Hacker. (email me for info).
I set my Side Bar to the left, because I'm left-handed and it seems better. Maybe deep-down you're a closet lefty and you don't know it? (-;
For beeps to work, make sure that in your "Sounds and Notifications" Control Panel, you have enabled "Events (warnings, system events)" other-wise they still won't play, even if the volume is full.
