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

Khamul, Thanks for posting the link to the old thread, very interesting to reread it.

I noticed something unusual in the thread, Jeremy joined the website on the 26th May 2006 and as webmaster you would expect him to be first

skwishmi responding to my points, joined on the 31st December 1969, as Tolkien was still alive at the time it was a great shame that he did not get him to join. It is also remarkable being 22 years before Sir Tim Berners-Lee invented websites.

On tolkien.co.uk all I keep getting is Commerce Server Error when trying to buy the new HoME Index... BH


I bought the book this morning through the site so it seems to have been fixed, 28 days for delivery, be interesting to see what it is like.

I also cancelled my Amazon order for the HoME Index.

I let Orcraider know that it was not the first printing and the eBay auction has been finished as unsold, which is the right thing to do and mirrors garm's positive comments on the seller.

It looks more like the Folcourt Press edition from 1969 by looking at the pictures on tolkienbooks.net (via archive.org)

Until Deagol fixes the site, you can use archive.org to see most of the information that used to be available. Archive.org can be a bit unfriendly, sometimes you need to refresh your browser to see the page, they also do not seem to have archived every entry so you may get some errors.
