The Curse of the Were-Rabbit

I’ve just seen the new Wallace and Gromit film, and it’s wonderful stuff. If, like me, you are a fan of the early Aardman work but felt that Chicken Run wasn’t quite up to the mark, then fear not! The dynamic duo are back! It’s just as good as the shorts, probably even better, but this time in full feature-length. Jolly good fun and highly recommended.

Oh, and any Archers fans will find Mr Growbag’s voice strangely familiar…


Lost Sherlock Channels

I almost never use the Sherlock application that ships with Mac OS X, but if I find myself in a U.S. city wondering what movies are playing nearby, it is one of the easiest ways to find out.

I fired it up this evening and found that all the channels seemed to be missing. An empty window – even less inspiring than some of the movies on offer at the moment.

If this happens to you, go to ~/Library/Caches/Sherlock and delete what you find there, then empty the Trash. That fixed it for me. Elementary, my dear…. oh, never mind.
