Give you joy, my dear

Browsing through Summa Minutiæ and what should I find but this. A movie is being made of one of Patrick O'Brian's Aubrey- Maturin novels. For those who feel the need to understand every one of the innumerable 18th century nautical references, they can be a bit of an acquired taste. But those of us who love O'Brian's novels love them dearly and this is great news indeed.
