Are you still addicted to the hypnotic and trippy Nyan Cat? Well now you can have it dancing around your desktop and hear its nyan-tastic theme music every time you transfer or download a file, thanks to Ben Stone and his custom Nyan Cat progress bar.

This is a mod of Ben’s Instant Elevator Music program, which automatically plays music whenever a process requires the user to wait, e.g. loading, downloading or transferring files. Still think it’s too good to be true? Here it is in action:

Nyan nyan nyan nyanyanyanyan! Sorry.┬áBen has only successfully tested the Nyan Cat progress bar on Windows 7, and says outright that it won’t work properly on Windows XP. I just know there’s someone out there who will upgrade from XP to 7 just to get this to work. Ben also says that the cat may only play nicely with the Windows File Explorer progress bar. You can download the Nyan Cat progress bar for free from Ben’s website.
