Geez, I thought it was "Speed Kills" ?!?

Am glad that you know how to do that "stuff." I didn't even program my current website. My son did during a college web class. (OK, I HAVE done all of the programming and updates based upon the templates that he provided.) So I'm impressed.

But how busy are we when we think that waiting only 8 seconds is SOOOOOOO much better than waiting 15? I think it speaks to the impatience resulting from wanting to do so much and only having so much time. I have to admit clicking my mouse a million times (seemed like that many, anyhow!) and yelling, "C'mon you stupid computer. Load the ^!$%%* page!"

Frankly, I don't care how long it takes. These pages are worth the wait (even if it were still an entire 15 seconds!) I don't post on everything. But I do read the many threads with interest (even if I don't collect the books.) Hearing what the knowledgeable have to say about the many subjects is worth the reads.

OK. I'll stop waxing philosophical and thank you for this site no matter how long it takes to get onto it!

Away from The Green Hill Country,

P

It has been relisted with a buy it now price of $8889, only $7200 approx more than they paid for it, what a bargain.


This book has been relisted again

http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/JRR-Tolkien-SIG ... tible?hash=item1e5b6dc9a5

The most rare book ever now has no reserve and seems to be a loss maker on the price paid to Jonkers, oh dear, it was way over the original price paid but unsold last time.

Could be a good buy as we are certain the signature (initials) are real.

Khamul, I'd never state that any of the threads that I start are interesting, though your contribution has certainly pushed it that way

Incidentally Jeremy, other matter that might be added could just be culled from the older post(s). I couldn't be bothered reiterating all this, as the link is there for everyone to read for themselves. Off to get my dinner...
