<Inspired by a true story that was kept secret until the fall of communism,
K19: The Widowmaker is the tale of an ill-prepared Russian nuclear missile
submarine that embarks on its maiden voyage with near-disastrous
consequences. However, on a much deeper level, it is a story of the misuse
of documentation that all technical communicators can appreciate.>

Thanks. Very funny! I'll be going to see it, of course - looking forward to
comparing Harrison Ford's performance as "Soviet Sub Captain" with Sean
Connery's performance in similiar role a few years ago... but now I shall be
looking out for their misuse of documentation, too. Perhaps I could get a
bunch of Scottish technical writers together and we could all shout at the
screen (as in Rocky Horror days) "RTFM! RTFM!"

BTW, do you remember the scene in "ST VI:The Undiscovered Country" where
Uhura speaks Klingon by the book?
