Haha from me too. My todo list grows about four times faster than I check things off for this site.

Lots of good stuff to come soon, though. I'm working on American books (easier now that I can do it along with bookstore stuff, since I bailed on trying to put together a comprehensive catalog).

I have a huge upload of New Line related calendar data and images from a wonderful fellow collector that is making it's way online (2001-2002 done, 2003-2007 still coming.)

I have multiple huge files (VanHecke's and Hildfons Took's) for the fanzine database, multiple megabytes of text.

I have permission to import from TolkienCollector.com whatever I can use, so that will definitely help fill out some images.

And that's just a sampling of the list for uploading and formatting of existing data. The way I figure it, in about two years this site will be awesome!

I made this poll "multiple selection" enabled, but unfortunately you can still only vote once, so those of you who already voted for one choice can't go back and add, but new voters can check as many options as they want now.

I have gone back and added Deagol's second vote for posters and Beren's for A/V and artwork to bring the tally up to date.

Thanks guys, that's ringing bells now - the facsimile Amazon refers to is just the dustjacket art from what I can remember, not the text. I'll dig through Beyond Bree and a few other sources for additional confirmation.

I updated the banner link, working again now.

I've gotten burned by the case sensitivity too - rowns.com file uploads are case sensitive, and the web interface automatically changes everything to lower case. That caused a few headaches until I switched to a great ftp client - Bulletproof FTP - that lets me schedule uploads, picks up broken transfers where they left off, remote file rights management, everything. The perfect tool for hosting my websites on remote servers.

I've had the same issue with eBay - I get dozens of emails a day from them (auto notifications for new listings of various types) and recently deleted many hundreds of them as out of date and unread. Just too busy with other things, recently.

Someone on the Mythopoeic Society mailing list asked this question and I thought someone here might be able to answer (I don't have a copy with me right now)

I have a question for the group about the hardcover "Hobbit: 70th Anniversary Edition" published by Harper Collins in August 2001 (available on both Amazon.com and Amazon.co.uk) . The edition is described as

Facsimile First Ed. edition (320 pages)

Does anyone actually own this edition?

Is this really what it appears to be: a fascimile reproduction of the 1937 edition complete with the original text (including the original "Riddles
in the Dark" Chapter (ch.5) and the original black and white illustrations. Does it include any of the colour plates included in the first American
Edition.

I am puzzled by the reference to the "70th Anniversary" which won't occur until September of this year, unless it refers to the time when Tolkien is first supposed to have started composing "The Hobbit"?

Can anyone shed any light on this?
