Yes, I just ordered mine successfully after having a failed attempt this morning (total failure - I don't think they had finished deploying it because it wasn't possible to complete a transaction at that point).

I actually sent them a list of bugs after my first attempt (countries not alpha ordered, was defaulting country to "Malta", could not get past address details to the worldpay screen).

It does say "beta" on it to be fair, though I've never heard of a company putting a beta version of an e-commerce site out in the real world before...

Hi Soronel -

Thanks for the tip and looking out for such items. I already have this one in my collection. Need to find the time (and some sunshine!) to photograph it and add it to my website.

To all -

The printer at my daughter's firm broke down last Friday afternoon as I was planning to meet her on Saturday to print the 2009 HI calendar. Now that it has been repaired, we are printing them on Friday night. So will be getting the first orders into the mail next week well in time for Christmas (even if you live in Europe.)

Away from The Green Hill Country,

Parmastahir

A bit more info on the audio clip from the booklet that accompanies the CDs.

"J R R Tolkien
[1892-1973]
Born in Bloemfontein, South Africa

The Fellowship of the Ring
Interviewer: Denys Gueroult
Date of recording: 20/01/1965
Venue: Randolph Hotel, Oxford
Duration: 11.44 [extract]

This lengthy interview, nearly 40 minutes in total, is the longest surviving recording made by J R R Tolkien. It was recorded for the BBC Sound Archive and was not transmitted. The interview comprises a detailed discussion about his most celebrated work The Lord of the Rings (1954-5). By the mid 1960s, the time of this recording, the books had attained wide poularity on both sides of the Atlantic. As well as being an author of fantasy novels, Tolkien was professor of Anglo Saxon from 1925 to 1945, and Professor of English Language and Literature from 1945 to 1959, at the University of Oxford."

Most of this interview has been transmitted in other areas but I don't recall having heard all of this interview. There are also some other great authors on the CD who I never expected to hear speaking, such as Arthur Conan Doyle, so I recommend this set of CDs. You can also get a set of US authors in the same series.
