hal silenced at the library

On the HAL series of games, we've made a change and added a link letting you turn off the noise of HAL's talking and astronaut Dave Bowman's labored breathing (really actor Keir Dullea through a scuba regulator---that's probably one of the authentic touches that influenced Darth Vader's noisy inhaling and exhaling in star wars) just in case you are in a library or something, open the page, and then HAL starts talking about human error or that he's sorry but he can't let you in through the airlock-right at your desktop or notebook and everybody stares at you.

We don't want that to happen too much, so each exercise has a 'silent' page version.
