I use Rainy Mood too. I need something to block out background noise while I work, but music distracts me to the point that I become unproductive. Rain is comforting to me too, so that's an added plus. I also downloaded the audio from this video which allows me to listen on the go, without internet access.

I wasn't aware of Rainy Mood, but I think I'm going to like it. I'm in the same situation as Pearwood; work is noisy but music distracts me.

For anyone who, like me, can't leave a tab open with Flash running all the time, the audio file is here.

This link seems to be broken now. I don't suppose you still know where the file is available?

Link updated. It's possible it changes, though.

You're welcome. I also recently became aware of ChatterBlocker, which costs money, but has a demo and seems quite effective and less repetitive.
