1. Turning the volume down was beyond my control. The newspaper made me work at a place where two bands were going to play..
2. Better, but it's still ringing a little in my right ear.. :(
3. (Need to get ear-plugs)

hmm, okay, hearing check?
Do I need speakers for this? :p
The problem isn't actually bad hearing, but ringing in my ears, this is called tinnitus, and can get chronical, I think has has passed now though.
It is called by loud noises, like standing next to speakers where the volume is high.
The thing I needed was ear-plugs, not a hearing-test. ;)
(I got it confirmed. I could hear. Very very loud though.)

Bill,

The payment for the shameless plug for your site can be done the usual way (secret account number in Switzerland) ;) :D

Ringing/humming noises in your ear. And yes. It's caused by prolonged exposure to loud noises, and can result in a decrease in hearing acuity.

Did I mention that I'm not a doctor? :D;)

You may not be a doctor, but you're a better doctor than doctor Pork or whatever his name is? :confused:
Ah well, at least it seems correct. :p
And watadoo: thanks. :)
