It;s Ok Sauron's SA, the last 11 of the 13 years wouldn't have been nearly as entertaining had you not been a part of it. []

Looks like Matt and Lyra are not responding to your wind-ups, Snowy! I guess they are both on facebook now. I wonder if they have blocked each other, though?

Lol! Don't know. They came here to break up and each marry someone else, then left.

Yes, I think Lyra was last here a couple of years ago. Matt even longer ago than that.

A nice 13th Anniversary note is we have had in our presence a Film4 Editor and TV presenter, and a couple published authors!

Great to see the White City still shining.

Like many here, MT has become a sort of fixed compass point in my life, a place unmarked by time it seems, while the rest of the world chugs along.

Maybe we should rename it Lothlorien?

Hmm.. 'I'm just happy you (meaning White Gold Wielder) keep it (meaning the Minas Tirith site) working and its the same as the day I joined (meaning it looks and works exactly the way it did when I first joined the site 13 and a half years ago).

I don't see ANY reference I made about my actual joining date being the day I posted that post. []

In honour of the Emteeversary, I am finally admitting to myself that I am never going to read the whole of HoMe in order. []

This realisation means I can at last allow myself to read The Children of Húrin. []

Good Atheney! Children of Hurin is a decent tale, whereas HoME is a collection of notes and alts and such.

I also checked for and noticed this mismatch. [] Broken down the sentence is unambiguous. I guess this is the result of the brain filling in expected information when encountering familiar observations. My brain shuffled a few words, gaining wrong meaning:

Happy Belated 13th/Early 14th Birthday Minas Tirith!

Coincidentally on May 19th I'll be receiving my PhD in Biochemistry from Yale University which, believe it or not, in part due to this site. Almost 14 years ago I found this site and the discussions on it lead me to to my first immersive academic type study of a single topic.

That initially training served me well as my interest shifted to science where I ended up becoming very successful in a relatively short period of time (e.g. I published two papers during my undergraduate degree (a first and a second author) and so far have published four in my graduate degree (with more on the way)).

Though it may sound like I am touting my own horn I am actually more trying to share my success and give credit where it is due. I am quite certain that my success now is directly attributable to the discussions and critical analysis skills I began to develop here!
