Someone has built Gilfoyle’s Napalm Death bitcoin alert

If you watch HBO’s Silicon Valley (and you really, really should), a recent episode featured a bit where Gilfoyle created an audio bitcoin alert triggered when the crypto fell below a certain level. An agency has built an actual real-life version of that alert. Sindri Guðmundsson from Viska explained that his company watches Silicon Valley as a weekly event while a season is airing and that the team built the tool “just for fun.” The Viska team wrote a simple Javascript plugin that fetches the price of bitcoin from Coincap.io, then built the site off WordPress, all within three hours. From The Verge. Now all a user will need to completely imitate Gilfoyle is an actual mining rig at home to toggle on and off remotely. Anyone mining out there? The alert was Napalm Death’s 1987 classic, “You Suffer,” a track that lasts exactly 1.36 seconds. Cool. Now, an Icelandic website design agency called Viska has created a web version ofGilfoyle’s death metal alert — which is just as startling as promised. In case you missed any of that, it goes like this.
