That’s a boring programmers term, forget about it it’s boring.
From today on it means:
Overhead Line Equipment : Overhead lines or overhead wires are used to transmit electrical energy to trams, trolleybuses or trains at a distance from the energy supply point.
That’s a boring railway term, but it’s just to illustrate that the railway can compete with the IT world when it comes to the number of abbrevations. In that aspect, not much has changed. In other aspects things certainly have. A lot. Which is good.
Imagine Bill Nighy, Tom Wilkinson, Kenneth Branagh, Stephen Fry and Eddie Izzard in the same film, together with Patrick Wilson, Carice van Houten (she’s Dutch!) and Tom Cruise.
Doesn’t that sound (apart from the Cruiser) too good to be true? It is not : Valkyrie is set to be released somewhere in 2008.
And talking about films, apart from Not here to be loved, here is another French film you absolutely have to see: Tell No One. It’s a fantastic thriller that keeps you on the edge of your seat from the first second, and it’s also a story about love. Ah, love – a dreadful bond … (for hose having seen Pirates).
The fact that François Cluzet is utterly charming, handsome and French and has something that reminds me of lot of Ken Stott makes it an even greater pleasure to watch. Catch it if you can.

Valkyrie: noted down on my agenda already (Eddie Izzard and all??)
Bill and Tom Wilkinson in one film, is what I thought. That’s going to be voicilicious :) Not hoping that Bill will play a German baddy though.
Nothing wrong with trains. They go fast and sometimes they are shiny. Enjoy your new vocation.
I wonder if we can ever get away from abbreviations. They make my head spin now. That’s probably age though.
Getting to learn some new abbreviations will be great fun …
