    Who’s a watsit all about??

    If I had to hazard a guess, I’d say that’s the proof/master back from the duplicators, playing on a TV, and showing that it works as intended and has functional subtitles, and therefore…we’re gonna get shipments soon?

    I’m guessing ‘greatest news ever’ is that master is done n dusted, and it’s all systems go? Brill!!!!

    Can’t wait to see that on my own screen here!

    Douglas Adams is alive again and working on a new Infocom game??? (I’d rather he finish The Salmon of Doubt, actually.)

    Douglas is certainly alive in our hearts, I like to think.

    Well said.

    Maybe I’m not the only one who gets a little choked up every time he sees the final few frames of the Hitchhicker’s Guide movie? :)

    Sure, but they lost a great opportunity. I have a taped reading of Douglas Adams who does an amazing job as the sperm whale. And they didn’t use it in the film. It was perfect, and could have been a great addition to the film.

    Yes, the last frames were wonderful. But they could have done more.

    That’s great news indeed, can’t wait to see it!

    I´m going to sleep under the mailbox.. as Charlie Brown used to do…
    I love Douglas Adams…

    Whatever this enigmatic news is, it’s awfully exciting.

    For people who stumbled on this later, this was the first time I had a fully mastered GET LAMP disc working (it was still a DVD-R-DL, but it was exactly the same as the final product). I ran it on my brother’s TV and DVD player, and it all just worked. The first time you see something like this, without the distracting computer software that makes the image and sound a trapped creature inside a smaller window, is quite breathtaking.
