Well, we missed it. May 21 - 25 is the anniversary, and everybody forgot. I'm going to figure out a way to set some sort of alarm for next year. I need to do something for our tenth besides post a belated topic.

We turned off public registrations, banned a long thorn in everyone's side, and spent the rest of the year arguing about hand puppets. What a year!

The Hobbit storm clouds are on the horizon. Whether they'll be a gentle refreshing rain or PJ and crew relieving themselves on the upward-turned faces of the public, only time will tell. Minas Tirith will weather it.

Wow! Hard to believe.

I've formed a lot of friendships with many. Some of the highlights:

I came here through the chance meeting with one of the first persons to be banned from this site. I have remained in contact with Will since. I even exhibited items obtained at national level stamp shows with excellent results.

I've made and lost a friend that introduced me to text versions of Tolkien's works, as well as brought the global part of this board to a stark reality. Rest in Peace, Bungo!

We've seen kids graduate from high school and college. We've seen their growing maturity and learning. Marriages have occurred, babies born (including to our Steward!).

We've seen the coming and going of many a spammer, vandal and just general pain in the butts.

It boils down to the simple fact that Minas Tirith has been a large part of my life for a lot of years. Let's go for at least another decade!

Has it really been 9 years since I stumbled into this city, where there were NO posts and the registration process didn't work? Yes, I guess it has been. It wasn't 'til August when I actually clicked on this saved favorite again, when the registration process DID work!

Wow, its been alot of fun through the years! And you know what? It STILL IS! []

Happy Birthday MT! I don't post as often as I used to, but check in fairly frequently to keep up. You guys are the best and I would miss you all if MT disappeared - which, for about 4 days several years ago I fear it had.
