Ding ding ding

Something is chiming at me from the computer and I have NO IDEA what it is. I hate that. Plus it sounds like a message coming in from somewhere, so it's making me even more crazy. Watch it be an ad playing in a buried browser window.

LOL It usually is an embedded ad that somehow got clicked. I was working away today when out of the blue music started. Seemed I'd clicked on a link and it took forever to load so I did something else and completely forgot about it until it started playing. Good luck finding it.

I never actually did. Also someone called me on my new cell phone and I didn't know what that noise was either :-/

(Honestly, sometimes it seems like I'm 85 years old.)

Mac or PC? Actually, it doesn't matter. Either way I wouldn't know what causes it. Does it only happen when you have internet open?

It's my mac. I had at least a dozen browser windows open so I'm thinking it was from an ad or maybe even a popup. It seems to be gone now.

(It could also be Skype though...that's what's tricky. I think I know what all those bwoops sound like but you never know.)

It's haunted!

Don't panic...Just call Vic, and get him to come over and find out what the ghost wants. (Make sure he brings Jacob on the off chance it really is just a computer problem.)

My guess is that you have a corporeally challenged fan looking for the next PsyCops book.

Vic is absolutely not allowed to touch my computer. Never never never. I see Jacob as the type of guy who always wanted a Mac but had to get a PC for work, but really wants a Mac. And couldn't justify getting two.

Dang...plot bunny, no doubt he's got an iPad....

Even if it's haunted, Vic is not allowed to touch it!

Did you ever figure out where it was coming from?

Every so often I hear a "plink" like a loud drop of water falling. I think it's the "It Gets Better" banner on Jesse Wave's site but I can't be sure. Whatever it is and wherever it's coming from it drives me crazy trying to find it when it goes off. Of course I could just close down the 50 or so tabs I've got open but that would be too easy :)

I never did - I'll assume it was one of the bazillion browser windows that was open.

It was a lot like your "plink" - something that could have been a chat window popping up (where I didn't realize chat was possible) or a little instant message or something.
