Dang, I saw this post too late. [In reply to] Can't Post

I'll have to check the moot board more often :-( Looks like a great event. I live pretty close, but I might have had to miss it anyway. I had a lot of previous obligations yesterday.

Stant Litore is a personal friend of mine. [In reply to] Can't Post

And he's a huge Tolkien fan, too. I actually met him through another LOTR movie forum.
