BBC7 Radio has audio dramas online for Blake's 7 (new stories!) and Terry Pratchett's Discworld. Unfortunately, it looks like only the current stuff is available, so we may have missed the start of the stories.

Todd McCaffrey is doing an online book signing. In other words, if you order from the right place, you can get the new Pern book pre-autographed at cover price.

Fox has changed their TV lineup yet again.

Tis the season for end-of-year lists of good books we might have missed. There are lots of them, some I might even agree with.

If you use Office 2003 and ever want to open old files (archived documents you wrote on an earlier software version or received from someone who did), don't install service pack 3 without reading the documentation carefully. It disables old file formats by default. That is a reason for me to use OpenOffice instead. I don't want all my old files to suddenly become disabled.

Licensing the music of the Beatles is being relaxed when performed by other artists, but they are still limiting the original recordings from use in advertising.
