9/3     "The order of events is still unclear. But one eyewitness has told
        Russian media that one of the many bombs stuck with tape around the
        gym fell and exploded. The roof caved in and hostages started to run.
        The attackers fired at them as they fled, prompting the troops outside
        to shoot back."

        Outside the school:
        "Evidence suggesting that Russian forces had not planned a storming of
        the building could be seen around the two tanks, whose soldiers milled
        about, evidently in confusion after the initial blast, before rallying
        and heading into a battle that continued this afternoon. Only after
        the fighting began did three helicopters appear overhead. There also
        seemed to be a shortage of ambulances at the scene, as the majority of
        the wounded were ferried in whatever could move."

3/21    Browser Plug-In you must get: Ghostery. It gets rid of a bunch of
        ad trackers on a web site, resulting in really fast load times.
        For example, a typical media site will require 10-15 trackers
        (you know, those URLs that track your activities so they can
        target you better). Ghostery kills them.
        \_ This has been working well for me, and breaks fewer things

        \_ how much performance gain are you expecting from using SSD?
           Let's say your 7200RPM yields 70 MB/sec (sustained) read and
           your new SSD yields 160 MB/sec read, and that your application
           is mostly streaming media (so the platter is continuous read,

        My question is how do stories like this find its way to news media?  Do
        people just go "hey something very interesting happens in our lives.
        Let's call up a news agency or two to tell the world about it."?

Flashpoint Just before 0900 GMT, emergency workers enter the school to recover the bodies of dead hostages, thought to be about 15. Minutes later, explosions and gunfire are heard and, at about 0915, a group of hostages of different ages manages to escape. But one eyewitness has told Russian media that one of the many bombs stuck with tape around the gym fell and exploded. The attackers fired at them as they fled, prompting the troops outside to shoot back.
