I'm trying to find a way to keep the dry factor while still making it 
accessible to newbies. WIP. I worry that people won't feel it is 
professionally oriented if the site is too funky ;) On the other hand a 
design that is clean and appealing to read is a good target.

This seems to be the general consensus. However we need to figure out a 
good way to get this info. Currently we rely on the user contributions 
and the wiki to do the job. If there is a better way we should find it.

This is new. I have added it on my local copy.

  Apparently upon the beginning of the barrage, the donkey broke 
discipline and panicked, toppling the cart. At that point, the rockets 
disconnected from the timer, leaving them strewn around the street. 
Tethered to the now toppled cart, the donkey was unable to escape before 
the arrival of U.S. troops.
