Me too. Ah, which cinema is it playing in? Because you still need to
tell the Union desk whether or not you need Village tickets, don't you?

<puts away question-mark umbrella> Why, are you? I just found it a bit
of a coincidence that they used the exact same name for a VR environment.
Douglas Adams also describes the "computer" of the future to work in the
same "undefinable" way (in _Mostly Harmless_ I think); it's so easy to see
the sci-fi roots of "The Matrix".
Within that paradigm, Douglas also talked about a little instrument which
appears to pre-empt the design of Microsoft Wallet. I'm not too sure
Douglas is too proud of that though.
BTW I got my copy of Starship Titanic this week <grin> "Starship Titanic
is big. Really big. You might think Microsoft Encarta is big, that's
peanuts compared to Starship Titanic" ... goes the manual.
