Phoenix, I have occasionally gone out there by tube, but mostly I take the no. 22. It's a nice run.

That's a very nice rendering, Dave. Is a quote from the film 2001 A Space Odyssey by HAL the computer. I presumed wrongly that pop culture references would be easily recognised here but maybe it's before most members' time. But certainly not Derek's.

Thanks for the clarification, Steve. I did need it because I have never watched 2001 A Space Odyssey, nor do I have any current plans to do so. I probably felt at the time that it would just be some other all-Greek saga, albeit in space. Excuse what looks rather like a mixed metaphor, or some such, as unlike 'odyssey', the word 'saga' is actually Scandinavian.

It's worth watching for the docking sequence at the beginning accompanied by the Blue Danube waltz. For some reason the full sequence isn't on youtube.
