If you were subscribed to the old mailing list then you will carry on receiving the updates from the new service. The emails may come from a different email address though so spam filters might intervene. I just have to run a few tests to make sure everything is running smoothly.

Thanks to Rowns for suggesting Wordpress - it took a while to adapt to my needs, but seems to be doing the trick.

I hope to get the whole of the main bibliography running from a database, but it will take quite a while to achieve - there are over 1000 html pages at the moment, and I think that there will be 300 or 400 additional items when I have all the letters, artwork and 'miscellanea' on there as well. I have started work on the 2000-Present section and this will hopefully be completed by late April or early May.

Can I get a few opinions from you all?
I have started to add details of published letters, artwork, interviews and recordings, etc but am worried that this type of material is swamping the books by Tolkien or contributed to by Tolkien. See the 1963-1967 section for instance.
Any thoughts?

Also, does anybody miss the forwards, backwards and up arrows used on the static pages? I use them to navigate a lot, but I am flicking through pages looking for problems and mistakes. I can set something up, but wonder if anybody else uses them much.
