The sound of silence.

On Saturday, I installed the software for my new mouse in Windows and with it came Musicmatch. Is it just me or does that seem odd? Mouse / music software. I don't see the connection. Anyway..... So I figured I'd take the opportunity to convert some of my CDs to MP3s (strictly for my own use!).

When I put the first CD in, it automatically started playing but I couldn't hear anything. So I tried it in the CD-R/RW drive. Same thing, no sound. It's not a Windows issue because I don't get any sound in Linux either.

I figure it's something as simple as a loose or disconnected cable (I haven't looked inside yet) and that it happened either when Ash got his new motherboard in June or when Newt and I were messing around with the drives in September. It's not a big deal and I'll fix it eventually.

But what amazes me is that it took me this long to notice! That's kinda sad, really.
