I don't know how I did it, but I've picked up a major buzz/hum in my microphone. It is in everything I record now. This appeared when I downloaded some software (procaster, flash media encoder) to try and do live streams in preparation for the TotJ. At this point, I am unable to use my microphone for anything at all, including teamspeak, and I have no idea how to fix what is causing the issue. The only thing that my technically proficient friends are able to recommend at this point is that I get a separate sound card, and a better quality mic than my cheapo GE headset/mic combo, something which I cannot afford to do now, and probably will not be able to afford at any point that the budget can foresee (and the budget currently goes through 2013!).
Sadly, until the issue is resolved, there will be no more content coming from my end.
If anyone has any advice in this regard, please let know ASAP. I am going crazy trying to get this fixed, and the internet is not being helpful at all.
