Seems that the new video card that I had to buy for our computer before this semester started has begun to buzz...actually the fan on it buzzes. I am not sure why and I haven't had the time to get on the forums to investigate it. It is absolutely annoying...up until this morning I have been just tapping on the fan and it stops, at least for a while. This requires me to keep my side panel off or at least not screwed back in.

This morning, I tapped it one time in frustration and my system locked up. I rebooted and decided not to mess with it anymore until I have time to figure out why it is doing it...I think it is just a bad fan. So instead of listening to it and letting it drive me nuts, I have started streaming the Funky Monkey out of Tacoma Washington. It drowns out the buzz quite nicely. We used to listen to this station sometimes when we were living in WA and they are one of the easiest ones to stream. I am sure I will get sick of the music eventually have to find something else but I just couldn't tolerate the dumb commercials on Yahoo music so it will have to do for now. I need to bring a few good CDs in here too so I can listen to them on Itunes....for now the Funky Monkey will have to do.

Since I spend all day listening to music at work, I've broken down and pay the $4.00 to Launch so that I can have streaming music commercial free.
