Thought of the day - early morning annoyance

 

75802-496602-thumbnail.jpgI woke up WAY too early this morning.  It's pouring outside.  Of course the dog decided today was a good day to explore the entire yard and got soaked and muddy. 

 

I wanted to listen to NPR this morning so I loaded up one of the local stations on my computer, hit 'unmute' and I was puzzled to hear what sounded like running water together with the broadcast... 

Ah, it seems I left Firefox up yesterday when I put my laptop away and a tab was still on a restaurant site...I usually keep my volume on 'mute' so I didn't notice yesterday, but this site has a REALLY annoying sound file that plays on load.  

 I don't know if it's just me, but I hate sound files, flash, animated gifs and other website trash.  Those items can be used for entertainment...but don't clutter up a business site with that stuff.  If I want to listen to something, I'll launch it (like the Hamster Dance).  Seems so old school...
