Turned my computer into a Geiger Counter for a few hours.
I ran mIRC v7.47.756 via WINE for about 5 minutes. About 30 minutes after exiting mIRC I'm listening to music on YouTube with earbuds and about halfway through the song I start hearing sounds like a Geiger Counter coming from the inside of my computer. I closed my browser, removed my earbuds (I don't have speakers), my machine actually sounds like a Geiger counter. Moving the mouse, typing, and copying files made my computer sound more radioactive.
I figured my hard drive was going bad because I've had other machines make all sorts of strange sounds like that when the drive is going bad. Spent about 4 hours making backups of everything, launched htop (task manager) for unrelated issues and notice mIRC and WINE is still running. The sounds stopped when I killed mIRC and WINE.
