Today I explain how I received my second microphone arm (the one that cost $39 on ebay and it works better than the one I got for $29). However, now with my computer closer to my microphone I've decided to put some foam around the computer (leaving it room to "breathe") to cut back on the noise. The lesson learned?
A) I'm listening through the ears of a podcaster. Listen through the ears of a LISTENER. Your noise may be unoticable to most people.
B) Sound Soap From Biad ($80) does a good job removing it (but does take some tweaking. Buy it from Amazon for $79

One of the benefits of being a member of the School of Podcasting is our weekly roundtable / live Question and anser sessions (typical 60 - 120 minutes long). In the last session one of the members talk about how his business is growing due to podcasting. Podcasting is:
Enabling him to reach a global market
Helping qualify his leads
Enabling him to reach customers in a "no pressure" format
Enabling customer to "try before they buy."
Also in this podcast I talk about how you can save money buying a collapsable microphone (sometimes called "Scissors, or Broadcast") boom stand

I currently have the $29 model and I love not having a stand next to my desk and the ability to move my microphone out of the way. I did have some issues as the stand holds the microphone in place, but when I first added a pop filter, the stand couldn't handle the weight. After really, really tightening the screws it seems to be working. I will get the $39 model later in the week and let you know how it goes.
