A colleague suggested that the best starting point would be to use a free online service to prepare 'auto-detect' subtitles, which could then be proof-read and edited before being exported and attached to the new version of the movie for Amazon.

Lottie has been with us now for 5 days. Perhaps I am slightly delirious from lack of sleep but I have fallen for her very heavily indeed much to the delight of my family. That's quite fortunate really as I'm discovering that puppies are not a walk in the park (excuse the extremely weak pun, I plead exhaustion).

What Google are being asked to do is to pay tax they don't really need to pay. Imagine if you looked at your monthly salary slip and your company decided to tax you at twice the normal rate, just because it looks better for you to pay more tax. How would that feel?

I wasn't asking for much money (the price of a cup of coffee), I wasn't asking people to leave home, to choose anything, to drive anywhere. I'd done all the work for them, they trusted me, they knew the project was real, they knew the gloves were going to real people and all they had to do was press one button. So they did. Facebook likes and Amazon wishes were turned (as if by magic) into real life love.
