Google is just a flippin ridiculous company... Amazing... Even their posts
are down-to-earth, going as far as naming individual developers responsible
for the updates.  Someone to point a finger at when it breaks? Possibly, but
probably unnecessary as their stuff almost always "works".

If you own a Dell XPS laptop, you can create a really nice visual alarm for
when something goes *really wrong*.  It's possible, which a bit of batch
filery, to make your LEDs go absolutely bonkers.  Find and download the
utility "xps_led_control.exe" [0] and create this batch file:

c:\xps_led_control -all 1
c:\xps_led_control -all 2
c:\xps_led_control -all 3
c:\xps_led_control -all 4
c:\xps_led_control -all 5
c:\xps_led_control -all 6
c:\xps_led_control -all 7
c:\xps_led_control -all 8
c:\xps_led_control -all 9
c:\xps_led_control -all 10
c:\xps_led_control -all 11
c:\xps_led_control -all 12
c:\xps_led_control -all 13
c:\xps_led_control -all 14
c:\xps_led_control -all 15
c:\xps_led_control -all 16
goto start

Execute the batch file and watch what happens!  It's a great way to get your
attention without making any obnoxious noises.
