A MAN has been unable to locate the source of music playing on his computer.
39-year-old Apple Mac user Stephen Malley thought the Coldplay-esque song was originating from a website’s annoying auto-play advert.
He said: “I was doing a bit of work and had a few browsers open. I thought it’s probably one of those infuriating hair-trigger adverts they put in the middle of news stories like digital land mines.
“After a bit of fiddling about, I closed all the browsers but could still hear the irritating song. It’s one of those stadium-indie songs that goes quiet bit, loud bit, quiet bit.”
Malley checked his iTunes to find it was not the source of the problem.
“By this point I just wanted it to stop. Maybe it was a virus from looking at pornography.
“I turned the main volume down on the computer but I made no difference. Then I turned the computer off.
“Again, that made no difference. Somehow the music is still playing.
“Finally I took up some floorboards and stuck the computer beneath them. But I can still hear it, faintly like ‘tap-tap-tip-tap’.
“Tap-tap-tip-tap. Tap-tap-tip-tap. Even in my dreams. Hahahahaha.”
