We just got a bunch of new machines. (3 computers, 1 laptop with Vista, all Dells). Daniel and Jeff are like kids in a candy store.
Anyway, we’re retiring Jeff’s machine. It had a really loud hard drive. When he turned it off at night, we would all let out a sigh of relief. What we have noticed though, is his new machine is almost silent…and now the office is almost painfully quiet…people feel nearby, and while we really do like each other, it is almost creepy how much smaller the place feels.
So…if you want a bigger office, maybe add some white noise. My aunt used to listen to cassette tapes to put her to sleep, so I know they are out there to buy.
