Part one of 'A Lonely Place for Dying' proves to be a massive hit with downloaders.

The Cold-war spy thriller A Lonely Place for Dying has now recorded over one million official downloads on BitTorrent via the VODO distribution network. TorrentFreak reports that the movie, which was made with a $200,000 budget, has even surpassed Source Code and X-Men: First Class in popularity over the last two-week period.

The popular download is only part one of what will be a five-part serialised release. The makers hope that donations from downloaders will help them fund a theatrical release. VODO has previously helped promote and distribute the independent Australian film The Tunnel, a horror/thriller that was set in Sydney and shot with an estimated budget of $135,000.

Popular BitTorrent client uTorrent has also helped play a role in the distribution of these independent films as it offers users the chance to download featured films as part of the program's installation. uTorrent also allows you to install the VODO app, which provides an easy way to then download all of the service's independent BitTorrent releases.

You can find a full list of releases on VODO's Web site.

Ultimately this laptop has achieved everything I would hope for in a laptop for work, while fitting that into a form factor and weight that is remarkable.

It really doesn’t get more “gaming laptop” than this.

MSI GS75

As the Maserati or BMW of laptops, it would fit perfectly in the hands of a professional needing firepower under the hood, sophistication and class on the surface, and gaming prowess (sports mode if you will) in between.

This small mobile printer is exactly what I need for invoicing and other jobs such as sending fellow tradesman details or step-by-step instructions that I can easily print off from my phone or the Web.
