I don't have a Netflix subscription, maybe one day when the ship with money comes in I do remember seeing 'The China Syndrome' in the cinema in 1979 or 1980 one of the few times I did see a movie in the local theater. In my memory this was about Three Mile Island but it was not of course, it premiered twelve days before that. I have to watch it again, it is with Jack Lemmon who after watching 'The Apartment' is one of my favorite actors. I only remembered that Jane Fonda was in it, not much else about the actual plot etc... The China Syndrome is not on Netflix but they do mention that it is in the docu so maybe they will bring it back on Netflix.
Somebody made a creative new music score to one of the suspenseful scenes, with both Jane Fonda and Jack Lemmon and Michael Douglas in it

Apart from economizing on subscriptions in general, I think my main concern is information overload I never read the newspaper I had, only the chess colums from Gert Ligterink I saved but they would just pile up in corner. I'm glad I got rid of that. And I have not watched television for more than fifteen or twenty years I think, that helps a bit. I do like movies though, and the fact that with Netflix you can watch whenever you want and stop the picture whenever you want, for instance just to watch the details etc. Then a movie can last a long time. I'm not a typical customer I fear... I do have a nice television now, but mainly watch the arty screensavers. If I cant use it as a computer monitor I don't think it will see much use. But it gives a very good picture so don't regret my purchase yet. I can always play chessgames on it with my old MSX computer. No ZX Spectrum, my nephew has the remake like Thorsten has.

Oh wow Thorsten, I don't really know If I could get them to work. I used to have a box with floppy disks but where it has gone I'm not sure... If I rediscover where they are, I will look. The computer probably could work, but those floppy disks, or the drive, I don't know if that still works after so many years Sorry. There must be programs for the MSX available though, somewhere. I do have a book with small artificial intelligence programs, like Eliza for the ZX Spectrum. At least I think it must be somewhere around here. It would probably be easier to write something like Eliza again than finding that book. I do have Sargon for the ZX81 in book version, that I am sure off. The ZX 81 I threw away finally when I moved here, maybe I should not have done that. Was the very first computer I owned, 1980 I think.
