    Beep Statement (Visual Basic)
vSeconds: The number of seconds for which this function will Beep. vSeconds defaults to 0 (zero) if it is missing.
Return Value: Function returns True if vSeconds is >= 0 (greater than or equal to zero) and it returns False otherwise.
Note: The function will Beep at least once even if vSeconds is 0 (zero).
Warning: This function does not work well with Windows environments where the Beep sound has been replaced by a multimedia sound, and the sound hardware is non-blocking (the sound hardware is decent)--it usually ends up sounding like a Max Headroom sample.
v1.3 Change: Changed the name of the argument, changed its datatype from Variant to Double, and specified a default value for it.
