Wooohooooo!

Welcome, welcome, welcome everyone to the new TORn boards! Laugh

The champagne fountain is located in the far corner and the chocolate fountain is in the other corner over there.

Help yourself to whatever you please from behind the bar. The bartender is a little busy at the moment. Wink

Hurrah! Here I am!

It took me a minute to figure out that once I signed up and was verified, I had to log in again before I could post. That was a little confusing.

I love what you've done with the place.

MUSIC! [In reply to] Can't Post

Hello all. I'm busily uploading some ROTK music our Inaugural Celebration.

All the links are on this web page. Feel free to share the links with other TORNsibs... since I may be busy trying to get these up.

We have 100 downloads available to us - or 7 days... which ever come first.

Seems early for anything harder... *cracks open a ginger beer*

Woo-hoo! I'm having a quick glass of champagne and then I need to get to my errands. Must buy moving boxes and start to pack for my other Big Move.

Big hugs to the Altairas, Inferno and TPTB for our shiny new forums. Praise them with great praise!

Each cloak was fastened about the neck with a brooch like a green leaf veined with silver.

`Are these magic cloaks? ' asked Pippin, looking at them with wonder.

`I do not know what you mean by that,' answered the leader of the Elves.

This is just what I needed after having the worst week, friends-wise, that I've had in many years.

Big thanks to everyone that was involved in making this happen.

Well, I'm going to post again to test out some profile settings. Even being used to other forum setups, this does seem odd, doesn't it? Like a new pair of shoes.

In honor of this occasion, some Howard Shore seems appropriate.

P.S. I'm holding my breath to see if my "spy report" about Shore's new project makes the home page!

This is SO cool! I love everything... I love how there aren't a billion boards so it doesn't choke you... I love how you can have avatars... I love the PM feature and the profile made much easier... I love everything!! =D

Hum... is there not going to be an introduction board for all of the new people that come in? Or will that be put in after the bulk of us go through? XD
