Some folks have trouble falling asleep. Some need music, or total silence. I need some form of white noise to cover up ambient, distracting sounds. Last week, I made it a project to record some suitable noise. It turned out well.
It's not advanced, scientific research on melatonin, just a simple DIY plan I came up with. I recorded the sound of a box fan (my white noise of choice for going to sleep) and dropped it to an audio CD. I can now take the boring, humdrum "hummm" with me when I travel.
No reason us Citizen Journalists can't be the subject of our own stories. For me, this turned into a challenge, just to see if I could make it work. Now that I have, I figured others might benefit from the work I did.
Realizing this might be of use to to others, I set up a site for people to download the fan noise for free if they want. I don't want to sell anything to my fellow DJ'ers. This is just a simple page where you can download some soothing fan noise to help you go to sleep.
