Good, my old login still works... []

Congratulations for keeping the site up and going for 8 years! In the Internet world, that's something like an age... [] []

Naaaah, we like them this way.

After all these years, new colours or something would just confuse the more elderly gentlemen among us *coughWETTYcough* resulting in them getting lost, somewhere in the Floating Log.

I'm somewhat late to the party, but something (I know not what) made me come back and take a look at this fair city once again.
Many (belated) happy returns to the White City, long may it continue.

For me, I must now have been posting (well, registered at least - I haven't posted much in recent years) here for well over third of my life - in just a few more years, for half of it!

Regardless, hurrah for Minas Tirith.

Yes, hurrah for Minas Tirith indeed. It's been a while since I posted here regularly, but this board still has a place in my heart.

That's another great thing about MT: the various ages and how we all interact here in a way that would probably not happen in RL. 1/3 of your lives is something like 1/7 of mine. Yet here in the city we're all peers regardless of age. I think that's cool.

It is good to see that this place is still going. I am just visiting; I sort of left for new 'hunting grounds' in my ever so unquenchable thirst for Tolkien knowledge and fandom, and since then I've come to realize that there is a lot more information out there than what is generally known.

By the way, I received Tolkien: On Fairy-stories last week, and it is probably Tolkien's Gedling 1914: The Birth of a Legend that is waiting for me at my local post office today. On Tolkien: Interviews, Reminiscences, and Other Essays will be released in August. A new milestone in my 'Tolkien career' happened in May; I met someone who knew Tolkien: Arne Zettersten, who has written the newly published Tolkien: Min vän Ronald och hans världar (approximately 'Tolkien: My friend Ronald and his worlds') about his experiences of Tolkien (a revised English edition will be released at some point). We had a two hour long discussion and if anyone is interested, I could post a translated transcript of it.

So you've met Arne! And isn't he a very nice person!

I've now met him a few times, last time was at Älvkarleby with the Forodrim jubilee a month ago. But I had the opportunity of a somewhat longer talk at our (Unquendor's) own 25th anniversary two years ago. No transcript of that, however. So I would be interested in yours, certainly!

Yes, he was very nice. I believe that he talked about much the same things at the Forodrim jubilee as he did in his discussion with my group. But our discussion was two hours long, and I had prepared close to 20 questions, all relevant ones that I could think of, to him beforehand.

Well, yes, he talked about the same subject at our Lustrum in 2006 and at the Tolkien 2005 conference in Birmingham, England.

I for one would be interested in reading it [] You might even PM me the original transcript - which would be in Swedish, I guess?
I'll look out for his book next time I'm in a Swedish bookshop.
