people: wow i love the new generation of Electronics, no moving parts means everything is completely silent!!!
me: *can hear the electronic whines from the SSD in my laptop, from the wlan chipset in my raspberry pi, from voltage regulator ICs in random things* yeah it's great

i can audibly hear my raspberry pi building this docker image and it's irritating

fun fact: despite being able to hear things like this, i struggle to hear actual human speech unless i'm cupping my ears or something

@maffsie This tells us that you were born to talk to computers, not mere humans

@maffsie Listen to 2013~+ cars in "Aux power" mode they fucking scream like banshees

@maffsie It's when everything is on but the engine is not running tl;dr

@Sir_Boops what the :hecko: is the point in a car that is running everything except the part of it that makes it actually go forward or backwards

@maffsie @Sir_Boops Being parked and listening to traffic news on the radio? Ok, that's not quite everything, but...

@not_on_pizza @Sir_Boops ain't that just eco mode? our car doesn't make noise when it's in that mode

@maffsie Normally what it does is prime everything for engine start afaik

@maffsie I've got a video of me starting up an IBM PC Portable. Sounds like a jet engine, the way a computed should ;-)
