Just happened to watch a movie called "ANTITRUST". Had fun, especially with all the broad swipes at Microsoft. Basically it starts as a story about 2 geniuses and geeks, one who joins the big bad world of IT Giants and the other wants to stay with Open Source. Please do not expect the movie to be geeky, it is anything but! And it is not about Open Source versus licensed software either, at least it was not to me. Basically it is a masala movie through which the common man learns of all these terms like Open Source, free knowledge, Global connectivity requires adapters, etc. Nonetheless good timepass...put it on your video rental list. here is one more link

The Old Grey Whistle Test!

Came home early and wanted to miss the Kusum crap. Put in a DVD and lost the
next 2 hours. Try it out. It is the DVD of a program which used to air in UK
in the 70's and the 80's. Phenomenal stuff!!! Like some one said...the show
put more emphasis on sound rather than visuals...and it shows! Great voices,
great guitar riffs, just wonderful. So if you see a BBC DVD called "The Grey
Whistler Test" check it out. This is the one I heard.Here's one link for
more history on the program.
