I gather I am the only one who didn't indulge in the St. Patty's drinkfest. Yep, married w/children. 8O


Well, I am Irish and I can tell you that St Pats isn't really a big day at all back home - so you have nothing to feel bad about.  That said, I did get accidently trashed last night at a friend's who produced a very nice dinner for a load of us - and later on, a very nice bottle of whisky.  What every full-blooded Irishman should be doing is drinking tonight - as Ireland have just beaten England in the Six Nations Rugby Championship Wa-Hay!!!!  :D  :D  :D

Anyone want a free USB drive from M$?

Apparently click on the "Valuable information" link, jump through a few quick hoops, and voila. Not sure it works, but it's from a reliable source, so what the heck.

Interesting bids on the (unlisted again?) 1977 character sheets.

Hahaha - after placing an automated snipe, I seriously went to bed thinking "hmmm, I might actually win that".  Oh, I still have so much to learn.  :)

He forgot to add that even though they are sealed, they have been soaking in a brine solution for the past few months.  Curing only preserves meat...not D&D modules.  :?

I thought the pen was on the inside of the plastic wrap of the mod M1. Maybe I'm wrong, but if that is true, how did it get out if it was sealed?

You're not wrong. The pen is attached to the module with velcro, and everything is wrapped up in plastic. That module either is not SW (it doesn't appear, though) or it was reshrinked without the pen. The latter case might explain why the other modules are shrinked so tightly.

On the other hand, the edges of the modules are good and they do not appear to have been opened and reshrinked. I believe M1 is not in shrinkwrap. The two monos might be worth, however.
