@ton "At 16Hz it’s just a few attempts per second shy of being within hearing range, otherwise I’d hear my Mac doing it"

Also reminds me of that bit from The Expanse (books):

"it reaches out it reaches out it reaches out it reaches out— One hundred and thirteen times a second, nothing answers and it reaches out."
