  1. don’t know if you got my message, don’t know if i’ve got the right phone number… I need to get up to speed with digital filming and indeed Final Cut [is the elements version worth it or should I go for the full pancake?] been asked to do a documentary of an arts project in Kosovo, Adrian said you were the man to talk to [about the kit, not necessarily about the cultural situation in the Balkans, but then, why not?] anyways up can you give me a ring if you have a minute?

  2. The PowerMate rocks. I use mine as a volume control/pause button for video playback; it’s so much better than +/- buttons for volume control [1]. Now to find a way to use the PowerMate to control my AV receiver…
