      Did anybody else think it was wierd to hear the alarm chimes during this? Made Dare seem even more powerful and ominous.

      Yeah, I was wondering about that too. It made me think of a particular scene in Iron Eagle (80s movie), where they're talking, an alarm sounds, and an F-16 is driven by.

      I actually thought something similar, but more along the lines of a horror film . . . maybe I didn't have the volume up enough, so I only heard the higher notes, and it sounded like maybe there was someone sneaking up on them with a large chain saw . . . but the carnage never took place. I was left feeling dissatisfied . . .

      The alarms made me want to eat ice cream, or chew tobacco, or both simultaneously.  I'm not sure.  Ominously amusing....

      It was easy to use that subdirective which pulls an xml file into an html page in a snap.  Not much else seems as simple though.

      It was a truck backing up, not alarms.

      We didn't get a whole lot of content in this video, but it is still nice to get to see and hear the man behind one of the best blogs in my aggregator set
