The makers of Hogfather have made a movie of The Colour of Magic based on the 1st 2 Terry Pratchett Discworld novels. It will air in the UK over Easter weekend and later this year on Ion TV in the US. The cast includes Sean Astin, Tim Curry, Christopher Lee, and a cameo by Jeremy Irons. The next adaptation will be his newest book, Going Postal, which will have a larger role for Jeremy Iron's character. Check out the official website for more info.

Is it wrong that I am tempted to go to Dragon*Con? I've never been, but I've heard good things about it and the guest list looks really good. But I'm already doing 2 non-business trips out of state this year, so 3 would be pushing it.

Saturn's second largest moon appears to also have rings.

A new computer controller is being developed that is a magnetically levitated joystick. It tracks movement in 6 directions: forward/back, left/right, and up/down, and can simulate resistance to weight by magnetic force.

DVR for tonight:
Stargate Atlantis (season finale)
The 2-hour version of the Dresden Files pilot "Storm Front" is scheduled to air on SciFi at 3am tomorrow (which is probably midnight tonight for DishNetwork).

Upcoming TV:
Stargate: Ark of Truth comes to dvd next Tuesday (3/11)
SciFi Friday will be airing 4-hour blocks of Jericho for the next few weeks. Then Battlestar Galactica will premier on 4/4, The Sarah Jane Adventures on 4/11, and Doctor Who season 4 on 4/18 (starting with the Christmas episode).
