I don't know that this will help with the woodchipping monster when it happens next time, but maybe it will help me get to sleep earlier: SimplyNoise, a noise masking website. I'm also eager to try it in the office to see if it can counteract the infernal buzzing, humming, roaring and whirring of office machinery. Try the pink noise with the oscillator. It seems soothing to me.

Wow, thanks! I am noise sensitive, but some kinds of white noise help.
So far, trying this out today, it has been quite pleasant, really doing a pretty good job of masking the droning from the new office machinery that just goes on and on and on and never stops. I was so happy to have come upon the link and knew other people must need something like this, too.
This is interesting stuff, thanks. I must ask Joe, who has synesthesia, if the pink and brown noises look pink and brown to him. -just for a laugh.
The white noise bothered me quite a bit, BTW -too high pitched (and the pink one sounded exactly like the old B%W telly we had when I was a child).
Oh, that would be interesting. I wonder if a synaesthete names these things to begin with, because they sure don't sound like pink or brown or whatnot to me.
I find that clicking the oscillate button (the one with the little wavy thing) makes a big difference with the noise. Constant unchanging noise is irritating, but a gentle rhythm is often lulling.
Thanks for sharing this, Yanub. I'll try it.
It's working really well in the office. Other people are saying it sounds like the ocean, and one person today asked me to turn it back on after I had turned it off. This may be the most universally useful website I have stumbled across in a long time!
