An asshole anchorman is sent to a little town to do a fluff story on Groundhog Day, but karma bites him in the ass when the town gets snowed-in.
A fantastic movie not just for the usual things, but for the execution of its idea. Unlike so many movies that have its elements, this one stays grounded and accessible. This movie is well-loved and highly recommended.
A simple little scanner. Does its job and has great auto-naming features.

Canon CanoScan LiDE 120
I checked SANE's supported devices list, and saw that the LiDE 120 is supported, however the model I received uses a different and apparently-unsupported chipset! (GL848+)
Herein are notes of my misadventure.

Pseudo-immortality is reached when alien technology allows humans to save their consciousnesses to reusable disks, and a criminal's disk is brought online from deep storage, for him to investigate the crime against an ancient and powerful man.
Finally, a science fiction show with real depth and darkness. Highly recommended.
A beautified text editor with the widgets around the edges removed.
I started using it because I couldn't trivially get Geany spell checking working.

A PlayStation 2 controller macro device.
This is a middleman between a standard PlayStation 2 controller and the console. It can also be chained through to a USB adapter or other such device, to ultimately let an original PS2 controller work with a computer.
Unfortunately, this has an limited number of button presses that it can do! I think it's 9 or 10.
