Hello Hitchhiker fans,

I have just uploaded my Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy background to zaurusthemes.com

Other H2G2 trivia on my Z:

I have the Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy MP3 CD (buy at Amazon) so I copied the files to my Z and can listen using opieplayer2. Now I just need a h2g2 skin to make that complete ...

If you have Frotz or any Zcode interpreter installed, you can even play the H2G2 text adventure game on your Z (you need the file hhgg.z5 which was last sold on "The Lost Treasures of Infocom" collection or you may find it kicking around on the Internet somewhere ...)

Off-topic, but check out the new Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy radio series (tertiary phase) at http://www.bbc.co.uk/radio4/hitchhikers/. You can listen to the programmes or play the game online. And watch out for the movie next year.

Last year i was at a conference (Extreme Technology 04 i think) in london and the production team from hitchikers guide were there talking about the film (we even saw a photo from on set!) and they were proper fans, seemingly making a big effort not to ruin Douglas Adam's work.

So i think it may be too early to judge if it will be a bad film.... I for one will definitely go see it :-)

Just my thoughts...

You can see the trailer at the official movie site. I've always pictured them all as being British, mainly because I listened to the radio series first, then moved on to the books, then the TV series, then the new radio series, and soon the movie. I'll constantly be comparing the movie Ford to Ford from the TV series, he was brilliant in it.
