[PLUG] Silly Mini9 noise thing

Something else I forgot to mention at PLUG N.

A while ago my Mini9 started making a "white static" noise.  I couldn't 
figure it out--solid state electronics just don't make noise like that 
and the thing has only SSD, no hard drive, no fan.

Turns out something (I suspect either an update or me being an idiot) 
turned "Mic Boost" all the way up.  I finally realized the noise was 
actually coming from the speakers, poked around, found that and turned 
it off.

Now, not only is the machine silent again, but it's running 
significantly cooler.  Wow...

"Microsoft Tax" = the additional hardware & yearly fees for the add-on
software required to protect Windows from its own poorly designed and
implemented self, while the overhead incidentally flattens Moore's Law.
