Default Chat sounds

After talking in chat about possible sounds that might come in useful, I thought a humorous one could be "Stupid fat hobbits!" Or for an entertaining AND practical one, "D'OH!"

So anyone else have ideas on what could be useful to have?

I'm not sure. Don't sounds take up alot of space?
I tend to use chat while I'm doing things so sounds can be distracting!

Nope, relatively short soundsbits in .au format don't take much space/time.

We're looking into adding some soundbits (read: Hans is gonna make some) but we can't say when they'll be available.

*WooHoo* I think a 'Halelluliah' sound would go down well there!
And how about an *Angel* noise? Harps or summat...
