What? John Ashcroft is behind me? Oh, I didn't hear him come in.

Oh, and that music? What is music?

I too can ignore the world. I sleep in a padded cell.

They're good for medium to high frequency noises, but only so-so on medium-low to low noises. So depending on the noise signature of your computer, they might not be that great.

The best solution for high-pitched frequencies is to sell them on eBay.

Hey, since you use these earplugs you wanna buy my 80GB WD SE for $40?

HAHAHAHAHA. One of the common uses for these earplugs is cheap ear protection at firing ranges. If I actually owned a gun, lived well outside the city and weren't paranoid about ricochet, I might consider purchasing that drive.

Crap. Oh well. At least I'll be passing it on to someone else soon. What a curse.
