altec lansing fails.

at staples today they had these altec lansing speakers for sale. $80 speakers for $30 after mail-in rebate for two speakers and a subwoofer with some decent kick and a small module for easy volume control and headphone plug-in.

i needed some new speakers. it's a good deal. bought 'em.

i set them up, powered them on, and discovered that the speakers aren't shielded. as in, they were picking up radio signals.

poked around the troubleshooting guide, and found under "i'm getting radio interference" the solution: "you're too close to a radio tower. move the speakers until the interference stops."

two guesses as to how well that worked.

FAIL.

ah well.

i haven't worked on step charts at all today. think maybe it's time to do that. after a quick shower. my hair feels grungy.

Hahah. I love solutions like that.

"I'm getting radio interference"

Solution:

"First you will want to find a good real estate agent, then you will want to put your house up for sale. At the same time you will want to begin looking for a new house which is further away from the radio tower which you are currently near...."
