A charity approached me today asking for money on the street.
Charity: Hey you in the blue jacket.
Me: Yeah, I know you want money. I know what you're about. (you see these people everywhere downtown asking for donations. Even if you say no, there's another one of them asking for more at a different time).
Charity: [goes on about asking for $1 a day to help some third world country].
Me: Do you know how many people are unemployed in this city?
Stranger: DEEP SIGH AT ME (for stating the facts).
Charity: [continues to ask me for money even though I'm unemployed]

Holy crap this sounds like something Soule would write for The Elder Scrolls. I think I just cracked his formula!!

I don't know about that, but there is one possible lifting by Soule that is likely not lifting and just coincidence.
Listen to the brass at 1:24;
Then listen to the opening chords that also recur througout;
Fucking annoying song, good for pissing people off. If Percy had a theme in the games, I always thought this would be it for some reason, probably because it sounds kind of pompous.
Noticed when I was learning Spiral Mountain a few weeks ago.
You have got to let the rhythm move you, move you. You have got to let the rhythm move your body to the beat.

Why would anyone....?
That seems like one step above this on the legitimate scale
I suppose if you had a fanless system with no hard drive or nothing else spinning up....
or just get a good psu.

The thought also occurs to me as I write this that PCB fabrication is much cheaper now than it was a few years ago and it would probably also be cheaper to have one made if someone were so inclined. Still, not for me though, my noise problems come from a lack of earthed outlets and won't be solved by installing random capacitor banks on my computers bus.
At the time it was priced higher, so at least they've lowered the cost substantially since them - it was over £200 when I stumbled across it and was completely irrelevant to what I was looking for.
