What's so frightening in Python? Python is more than simple programming language... to study and perception.

Of course Python is suppose to scare you. "No one
*expects* the Spanish Inquisition."

WARNING: make test plays a sound
I built Python-2.2.2. When it was done I executed
"make check" and continued with my other stuff
and didn't think more about the test going on in
the background.

Suddenly I got a shock when I heard a strange
sound from my computer sound system. I could not
identify it and assumed that I had been cracked
and someone was playing with me. I immediately
disconnected my network and started investigating
without finding anything suspicious. I wondered
if I had lost my connection to reallity or if I
had gotten otherwise mentally ill.

Finally I returned to the shell with the python
build and ran "make check" again because I didn't
know what else to do. After I while I heard the
sound again and got another shock. Then I thought
it would be something related to Python and
executed "find -name *.wav", nothing, "find -name
*.ogg", nothing, "find -name *.au",
"./Lib/test/audiotest.au"! I played the sound and
recognized it as the strange sound I heard
before. That was a relief!

Is Python supposed to scare the shit out of
paranoid people like me?
