I just ran across something from 1972 when I was resorting, but I can't remember off the top of my head what it was.

I have a beaten-up copy of Eldritch Wizardry.  I don't know if I'll sell it or just keep it for the cover.   :wink:

Actually, most of the needles had already decided to take themselves down some time ago.  What I actually removed was an elaborate collection of twigs.

If its any consolation to you John, my high school Spanish teacher had hers up for over 3 years.  Granted it was a fake one, but still. :wink:

Thank you for those words of comfort :D .  I managed to get to August about 3 years ago with an artificial tree.  And I thought it a sound argument that it was a pointless exercise taking it down at that point; being well over half way to next Christmas.  But all that I got was one of those "JFDI" looks :(

Neat. Who broke eBay? :)

"Page not responding", plus zero prices returned for all auctions on ebay.com via my sniping tool. (ebay.co.uk is OK).

The LOtA (Lords of the Ether Auction) are either going senile or they are in the midst of a massive reboot.  Don't people at Ebay know how badly we need our fix?

Why does every date on this website read as follows:

    Why?

At least your tree was inside where no one else could see it.  I still have to take down the outside Xmas lights.

It's too cold outside to climb on a ladder!  Why can't Xmas be celebrated around the middle of summer?   :D

When I was in University many moons ago me and my roomate put up a tree and did not take it down until we moved out 4 years later.  It became a running joke among my friends so we really couldn't take it down.

Doing some pre-spring cleaning (and inventoring) I had a question on G1-3. Page Not Found
I have either a 1st or 2nd print, but what are 'scratch marks' on the illustrations?

Are you talking about the illustrations in the module?
Or the image on this site? Page Not Found

If the latter, isn't it the shhrinkwrap seams?  If the former, I'll have to dig out my copy to see what you mean.

Latter as noted in site description (Second:  Described as having minor scratch marks on interior illustrations cleaned up; this print is unconfirmed.)

Oh, I was meaning further towards the right-hand side of the screen, just under the "Seller information" title, actually. :)
Unless I'm missing some sort of glitch or feature in how the user info is being displayed...
