Digging through the archives: "FOTR Extended DVD Review!" Can't Post

Since it's almost impossible to get excited on The Hobbit board with the news of the extended edition of AUJ (Angelic), I was digging through TORn archives for news around the time the FOTR extended edition was released (the news I link to is the DVD Review).

Does anyone have any (fond?) memories of this time, and remember what it was like to receive it in the post? What was your reaction to the new scenes, and which was your favourite (and least favourite) scenes? Can anyone remember any specific rumours at the time, including which new scenes may or may not be included? I imagine Tom Bombadil was a hot debate at the time, just like the Talking Purse is today. The same goes for all the extra documentaries and cast interviews - what was it like getting your hands on them?

I remember like it was yesterday the day of the DVD being released. My sister and I were sat by the front door waiting for the postman to arrive. He was later than usual, which got us rather frustrated. When it did arrive, I remember playing it and falling in love with the additional footage. The Gift Giving scene in Lothlorien has, and will always be, one of my favourite scenes in the entire trilogy. My EE copies are rather bruised and battered after all these years of them being played.

I'm sure I will get the exact same excitement this time round.
