**FD: Scenes From The Hat--Founders Day Edition Can't Post

Welcome to a very special SFTH in honor of our four Founders, Tehanu, calisuri, Xoanon and Corvar!

What problems/snags did the Founders encounter while trying to set up their little website called The One Ring.net?

Happy Founders Day!

And suddenly the Ainur saw afar off a light, as it were a cloud with a living heart of flame.

Their Baggins side was winning. They wanted to remain respectable and didn't want any adventures. [In reply to] Can't Post

They may have lost their neighbor's respect, but you can now see whether they gained anything over time. Wink

Ah, you didn't see the frantic copying, pasting and deleting that went on this morning to get these things posted! Crazy

Well, I'm back online, for the moment, anyway, and don't have to return to the public library to visit TORn and the festivities.

Party on!

down from the door where it began
now far ahead the road has gone
down from where all began' -FOTR-

and through all the world has changed
the ages come and go with time
and yet those remain unchanged
unto they journey westward
over the sea...

and through it all we remain strong and true
for eternity is bonds unbroken
beyond the sea...

They went in, and Sam shut the door.
But even as he did so, he heard suddenly,
deep and unstilled,
the sigh and murmur of the Sea upon the shores of Middle-earth.
