heh, works for me. You probably have to configure firefox to use some external plugin to play
that sound. for me its mplayer with the mplayer-plugin.
also, your mplayer (if you choose to use that) must be compiled with ogg, and all I did was have
ogg in my USE flags when I emerged mplayer.
actually the pronounciation of that persons name sounds like a chicken.
