From Nelson’s Weblog: life / escapeFromNoise:

bq. Sound isn’t like light. You can close or avert your eyes but it’s nearly impossible to avoid an offensive sound.

* Here at work we have a large atrium rising the height of the building (eight floors). All but floors six and seven are open to the core; no walls, just a railing. Needless to say, noise carries quite well, especially up from the lobby.

* There are a few cell phones in the group, mainly for the customer support team. They get annoying quickly.

* Our old Dell’s are, well, old. The main CPU cooling fan starts to _squeek_ after a while. It’s a very high-pitched sound, difficult to track down when computers are behind partitions and under desks.

I wear headphones most of the day…
