You never realise just how loud your desktop is, until you sit and use the laptop instead. Without the sound of all the fans and whine of failing hard disk bearings, you can hear other sounds...

The wind in the trees outside, the rain lashing against the window.
The low buzz/rumble of the kitchen extractor fan resonating slightly, varying up and down in pitch.
The gentle airy whirr of the laptop hard disk, with the odd click as it talks to itself.
The reliable tick...tick...tick...tick... of a small clock.
The 'tock' of a relay and the hum of a pump as the boiler preheats the heat exchanger.

What do you hear right now?
