Fibre Optic Christmas Tree contd ...

Dick finishes the story about his Christmas Tree, which has something to do with a film starring Colin Farrell, about cops and family honour, which has not been released.  From Dick's description, it might be Pride and Glory, which is due for release next year.  The cast includes Edward Norton, Jon Voight and Jennifer Ehle.  Look out for Dick's boat in it.

Dave Sanders writes in.  His wife's iPod battery died recently, which got him into a rant.


When Dick wants to check on a new episode of DGW, he uses Ludwik Trammer's GizWizSearch.
