Sounds good to me. I love the fact that this volume scale goes up to
11!! You know... one louder \o/ Spinal Tap FTW!

Brilliantly, the Flash player on the BBC website has a volume scale that
goes up to 11. Love the homage :p

I know this wont be exposed as such, but it makes me smile on the inside.
