Yeah, that makes sense. [In reply to] Can't Post

You basically just had to switch the settings for what type of cable you're using i guess. Glad you got it figured out and can now see AUJ in all it's glory!

because I pre-ordered the DVD (won't be released in Germany until April 19th, *sniff*) --- now I have to find a friend with a fairly modern computer since my laptop is so ancient it doesn't play videos smoothly, and a friend who's at home on Sunday evening at 9 p.m. to boot. Wish me luck! Normally, I would've gone to the library and borrowed on of their laptops (they've got a fast internet connection, too) but of course they're closed on Sundays.

And I hope no one tries to steal my code!



Yes, you have to hook up with someone! It's so odd hearing all the various times that this event is for everyone. I do hope we see some worthwhile goodies - I am having friends over to watch too on Sunday (3 pm for me). I hope all goes smoothly for you Angelic.... and wishing you all the luck in the world!

(Granted I know it will be captured and YouTubed, but there is an element of fun in getting it live!)

That made me laugh! [In reply to] Can't Post

Being "coded" means something so completely different to a nurse Laugh

I had [In reply to] Can't Post

originally bought the normal edition then I cancelled that since it doesn't come out here till April and bought the UV region free blue ray edition. Does that come with a code?

So Frodo Baggins boarded the great ship and passed on into the west till the sweet fragrance on the air filled his sense and the sound of singing came over the water. Then it seemed to him that, as in a dream, he beheld white shores and beyond them a far green country. The third age of Middle Earth was over, the days of the Rings had passed and the story and song of those times was at an end.

I think all the BluRay editions should come with a code over by you. Here my regulars had codes too, but I was reading in all the UK threads that its BluRay only. So you should be in the window. It seems some people got an auto email and some people had to rattle their sabers and track down the code with Amazon.

The Boards will be the most bizarre test you will ever take, but you will do fine. (Bizarre because you sort of leave asking, what the heck kind of questions were those?!) I am ICU so we often do a couple of codes a day...

Sending you good energy! Congrats for getting there and look forward to congratulating you when you pass! Angelic

Thanks, Brethil!! [In reply to] Can't Post

I was only able to precept in the ICU one day, but I did enjoy it a lot.

Thanks for all the well-wishes! I'll be sure to let you know when everything is official Smile

for those who wish to see the trailer but haven't bought the dvd/blu-ray [In reply to] Can't Post

 
...perhaps some "trailer parties" can be planned.

i realize this won't be an option for many, but perhaps it will help some out.

i don't think it's stealing or cheating to have company over to watch the trailer. rather, i think that's in the spirit of the thing.


cheers --

aka. fili orc-enshield
+++++++++++++++++++
the scene, as i understand it, is exceptionally well-written. fili (in sort of a callback to the scene with the eagles), calls out "thorRIIIIIIN!!!" just as he sees the pale orc veer in for the kill. he picks up the severed arm of an orc which is lying on the ground, swings it up in desperation, effectively blocking the pale orc's blow. and thus, forever after, fili is known as "fili orc-enshield."

this earns him deep respect from his hard-to-please uncle. as well as a hug. kili wipes his boots on the pale orc's glory box. -- maciliel

You're correct, in Germany the sneak peek is at 8 p.m. [In reply to] Can't Post

and I'll correct it in my appointments calendar immediately. Thanks for the hint!

I'm going to see it at my Japanese friend's place --- she'll be putting her kids to bed at that time and since this always takes about an hour and a half, I expect I'll be watching it alone and with a headset so in case the kids are noisy they won't disturb me (I don't mind kids yelling except during such an occasion!). But she says she hopes it will all be on youtube soon in case Legolas is in it...

I got ripped off [In reply to] Can't Post

"You can choose to buy it or not."

Nope, not where I live. WB has really dropped the ball on this one, the worldwide distribution of the DVDs and bluray has suffered from horrible planning.



The greatest adventure is what lies ahead.
