What do you hear when you listen?

* The wind - stormy weather

* My keyboard clicking

* Fans of the computers

* Laughing cowies from the other office

* Someone closing a window (the wind?)

* Cars

* Crap song on crap radio above my head

* Cowie on the right furiously clicking his mouse

*Cowie to the left noisily eating crisps

*Cowie on far right typing

*Door slamming in the distance

* the extremely loud network hub behind me, which i am about to go and unplug now that i think about it.

*cowies talking queitly amongst themselves

It's lunchtime, so like a graveyard in here.

07-11-2007, 13:06:46
* ooh, someone's talking now!

* someone else rattling money. If I was closer to the kitchen I'd hear the clunk of the vending machine in a minute

07-11-2007, 13:08:30
* muffled sounds of the meeting next door
* people typing and mouses clicking
* my own chewing

*Cowie's keyboard

*Beeping noises from someone using the touchscreen from the office printer in the opposite room

*Faint laptop fan

* The computer's fan, very loud 'cause I can't close my case due to lack of IDE ports.

* CD drive whirring in and out, reading a CD etc.

* The gradual Videunt Omnes in the form of a responsorial psalmody, to be preformed in the second segment of the mass in proper.

* Johannes Ciconia's late 14th-century Motett "Sus Une Fontayne", a typical example of late-mediaeval Ars Subtilior composition.

* My own sighs at having to learn all of the different forms of Mediaeval church music.

Very quiet now ... Am I dead ... no, there's still the fans ...

I often wondered: If I'd die in my office and I'd go straight to hell, how would I notice the difference?

I hear a constant roaring. I had always thought it was the bus Engine, but you could be right there, maybe the gods do want me to kill them all.

They are waiting for me
Calling my name
Shouting out loud

08-11-2007, 09:42:27
Today I can hear the sound of one cowie's head exploding interspersed with the sound of another banging his head off his desk.
