I'll update here if/when pre-orders are available online. It may be that these are distributed through the publisher directly and not through Amazon, so stay tuned.

I had the same problem with reCaptcha, so I have some debugging to do if I keep it. It is only turned on for the Blog comments right now, so it shouldn't affect other areas of the site while I play with it.

Thanks for the tip on JS SpamBlock, I will definitely look into that. I do agree that the text can be hard to read and can sometimes be a pain, but I like reCaptcha for three reasons - one, it does the obvious (make sure there us a human on the other side), two it can play audio hints for the visually impaired, and three the words you type are actually used for text scanning verification - every time a user responds to reCaptcha, a document scanned by OCR is checked out to make sure the text was read properly.

In general I get a huge amount of comment spam and discussion forum spam. In fact, there is one spam software app out there somewhere that registers fake users automatically that I am currently fighting off. I filter it all by hand right now, so I need some automated help. Feedback on what systems people like is always appreciated!

Mmmmmm... Hobbitses. Tasty hobbitses.

Let me know when you put them up for sale and I can list them here as well (like I did for Wellinghall) if you want.

Update - the final hammer price was $21,000 so including the 20% buyers premium someone paid a total of $25,200 for the set.

Not a bad price for all three, I think. I hope they end up in a good home.

Your answers here will help me figure out what level of integration with eBay seems appropriate for the site. Do you use eBay a lot for collecting? A little? Buying? Selling? Both? Longer responses here in the forums are useful too!
