Welcome to the 'Unexpected Party' chat... blog... thing Can't Post

Like you, TORn will be following the chat and looking for those little nuggets of information that we can chew over and debate for the next few months... maybe years! We'll also be bringing you speculation from the TORn staff on "what it all means."

Feel free to respond to our blog and add thoughts of your own!

Woohoo [In reply to] Can't Post

Thanks for this TORn and maegwen Smile

I'm soooooo excited right now... so that's another link I need to keep refreshing over the next few hours. It's 10:48 PM here in India, and what a night this is going to be... a night to remember Cool

Crows and Gibbets! What is The House Of Eorl but a thatched barn where brigands drink in the reek, and their brats roll around on the floor with their dogs! You are but a lesser son of greater Sires.

I wish I could go into Barliman's, as well, but for some reason it doesn't load onto my computer. I hang at the connecting part of it :(

I can't wait much longer! What am I going to do for the next hour?? Time always goes so slowly when you're looking forward to something...Frown

"O Elbereth! Gilthoniel!
We still remember, we who dwell
In this far land beneath the trees,
Thy starlight on the Western Seas."

"It was Sam's first view of a battle of Men against Men,and he did not like it much. He was glad that he could not see the dead face. He wondered what the man's name was and where he was from; and if he was really evil of heart, or what lies or threats had led him on the long march from his home; and if he would not really rather have stayed there in peace..."

"Many folk like to know beforehand what is to be set on the table; but those who have laboured to prepare the feast like to keep their secret; for wonder makes the words of praise louder."

I've heard people say that before. The java chat doesn't work for some people.

I think.... [In reply to] Can't Post

there are probably tons of people logged on (I know I am) but any interaction is turned off at this point. Everything will get hopping when the chat actually starts.

Do not meddle in the affairs of hobbits for we can bite your kneecaps off!

Here's the text... [In reply to] Can't Post

...on the right side of the chat screen:


Quote
"Asking a question of Peter or Guillermo
During the chat, simply type into the grey field and click on the ‘Ask a Question’ button. This will send your question to the chat host who may pass it on to Peter and Guillermo. They will answer as many questions as they can, chosen from the ones submitted by you and others. Chatting to other fans
Your comments can be seen by the others in your group. Each group consists of up to five fans. To have a conversation with the others in your group, simply type your comments into the bottom field, and click on ‘Send a Comment’. Your comments won’t be seen by Peter and Guillermo or anyone outside your group during the chat event."



So far, I'm all alone except for two weta mods....

~~~~~~
Believe in the possibility of the impossible.
