How can I switch it off by software?
No matter how hard I try there will always be one more program that
will find a way to beep out .
I guess I need kernel patch to disable it completely...

BTW Sneakers is way better in technical terms than Hackers. I don't

mathematician who developed custom RSA breaking hardware. On the other
hand I cannot stop thinking about the flyby 3d animation that they
showed to visualize the hacking in Hackers.
