I'm making a small size poster out of it for myself right away, it's just the way I was imagining it! Cool

One of my all time favorite books coming to the big screen via one of my all time favorite directors? Can this be really happening? Thank you Guillermo. And welcome aboard!

Have you double-checked the size? [In reply to] Can't Post

It's possible that if the photo is too big, it won't display. Here is the info from the Terms of Service - http://newboards.theonering.net/...forum.cgi?post=51#51 (which relates to all photos embedded in a message, not just footer pics):

5. Speaking of footers, so they don’t get too busy or big, please hold to the old TORn guidelines of keeping them at 50k or less and no bigger than 480x360 pixles in size (even better would be 50% of that, or 240x180, as large images take up more screen space in the posts here).

Also check out 2.20 and 2.21 in TORN 201 - http://newboards.theonering.net/...forum.cgi?post=50#50 - for tips on loading photos.

Dwarves: "Pretty rings..."

Dude, you rock.... [In reply to] Can't Post

Ok, just the fact that you posted a riddle here, that was great....and you motivated me to join TORn again...I was here before FOTR as a member and then....drifted....caught up in the LOTR fever, I strayed....

I read posts, and I felt connected here all the way through ROTK....what a wild ride.... but I didn't post much....yet, now....

I'm so psyched to hear that you are directing what will surely be an amazing Hobbit adventure- with all the support you will get from cast and crew added to your amazing abilities I have a great feeling about the outcome and I look forward to following your journey into Middle Earth as we fans will experience it...I remember how I felt upon hearing LOTR would become a movie with Peter directing.....bring the Rock!!! I can't wait....

Very well done... [In reply to] Can't Post

Thx! Now you've got me looking over at a part of the TORn boards I hadn't paid much attention to in the past. :)

The part of Bilbo is sooooo speculative at this point. Oh boy! We can talk until we're blue in the face, I suppose, but in the end we have to just put our faith in GdT and PJ. Well, if they end up not using Ian Holm onscreen, I'm hoping maybe they use him at some point in a post-perspective voice-over narrative.

Thx again! Fun art.

Re: Posting pictures [In reply to] Can't Post

I assume you mean *attaching* pics doesn't work in Mac. You could use the other method and post the pic at Photobucket like the FAQs suggest, then paste the html PB gives you for each pic into your post and the pics will show up.

Thanks [In reply to] Can't Post

though that would mean that I first have to get a photobucket account and upload pictures there. Maybe when I have a bit more time. Provided that it truly works with MacOS ... some features that show up on a Windows computer don't show up on a Mac. It would be too easy otherwise Wink

Btw, uploading pics as attachment works for me, surprisingly, but not posting them in the post itself. Oh well, I don't need it very often - every few months or so.

Oh. My. God! [In reply to] Can't Post

This is a true privilege. The opportunity to actually be on a forum and to be able to be greeted by my favorite filmmaker (and one of my favorite people in general). This is truly an experience that I never thought that I would have. It's great that you're making such an effort to become involved with the fan community Mr. del Toro. I've always dreamed of meeting you in some way shape for or fashion, but to see a filmmaker, someone who seems so distant and far away in Hollywood, actually showing up online for the fans is an incredible display of care that makes me feel truly proud to be a fan of your work and to be an aficionado of cinema and culture in general. Hopefully, your stay here will be a pleasant one, and you're certainly welcomed by me!

Do not meddle in the affairs of dragons, for you are crunchy and good with ketchup.

Where and when was the pic of GdT and PJ taken? [In reply to] Can't Post

Is it one that's been out there before? I don't remember seeing it anytime in the past few months. Credits say it's courtesy of Stuff.co.nz., with a story from The Dominion Post, dated Fri., 4/25/08. Anyone know where the two of them were when the announcement was made? LA? UK? NZ?

I think if this *was* a sendipitous event, it is truely amazing. However, it is almost too amazing to be believed. I think the timing was actually planned. Did not GdT hint at the date in his Riddle? Why wait if a likely date were so well known in advance, unless if it were to be in honour of the original story???!!!

At any rate, I must commend you Gramma. on your Eagle eye (like the Eagles that were the saving grace at the Battle of Five Armies). That was a great spot. :)

Thanks... [In reply to] Can't Post

for the riddle, Guillermo - and welcome to tORN. I'm glad to see that someone's finally going to do a serious job of the Hobbit. Now we'll really know what Thorin, Oin, Gloin, Ori, Nori, Bifur, Bofur, Bombur, Smaug, and all the rest of them really looked like! By the way - I never found out. What was the right answer to the riddle?

Heed the words of the Gaffer. For even if they not be wise, they are worth listening to.
