To understand why this is significant, you need to understand the following:
1. I have the computer hooked into my stereo
2. my stereo is a frightening evil beast
3. at the time, I had the "email received" wav set to this particularly MANIACAL laughter from a Monty Python sketch.
So JUST as I open the bathroom door and walk out, dripping wet and stark naked, this incredibly loud maniacal giggling comes bellowing out at me from down the hall in the living room...
And it's stayed that way ever since.
