Another great little British SF movie after last year’s Moon. Is there a trend of one word titles beginning with ‘M’?

Handy gadget for attaching bare drives by USB without having to mount them in a caddy or case.

Went to see Sofia Coppola’s new film Somewhere starring Stephen Dorff and Elle Fanning. A meditative piece of similar themes to Lost in Translation but less comical. Not much happens but I liked it.

My pair of Formac 160GB rotating back-up drives were full so I needed something bigger. I got a pair of GoFlex 1TB drives which came with USB interfaces. I got a single Firewire pluggable interface to share between them. One drive is sitting in the Firewire dock getting backups stored on it while the other is rotated out offsite.

A £5 Firewire 400<->800 cable let me plug it into my iMac.

Probably incomprehensible if you hadn’t read the book. Various scenes from the book unclearly connected in the film. Worst of the three, and not a very good film.

At imdb.
