just noticed that JB is bidding me up on that R-4 pre-pub.

hey no point in doing that JB. i aint even close to the reserve, so you may as well hammer something solid in, instead of playing about :D

A real nailbiter.  Liverpool were all over the place for the first half and I thought we had a real chance.  But Gerrard's 90 minute equaliser was just amazing - and after that I just had a feeling it would go your way.  Great game too.  Normally in cup matches teams play really conservatively - but 3 : 3 plus penalties - wow!

have to say as well tho. total respect to west ham this season. 1st season back in the top flight and they have been brilliant. uefa cup spot and FA cup finalists. superb.

lets see if they can live up to that high standard in the next season - thats normally where the teams really struggle (will be interesting to see how wigan fare too)

I have two EX2 Land Beyond the Magic Mirror modules, both look identical, but one has a booklet with 2 staples and the other has 3 staples. Was this common to do for TSR, or does the number of staples mean another printing?

It is bad enough we have to own one of those modules, but two... 8O

I'll check staple count on mine. I also get several a year that pass through ebay. I will make a point to check for consistency.


And I could've bought these damn modules off the 1$ rack!!!

I didn't intend to keep two, but well now I will (even if it doesn't pan out as anything special)

This had an opening bid of $10.00 and a BIN of $12.50:

Dungeons and Dragons GreyHawk Book Box Set | eBay

But for some reason someone just knocked the BIN off and didn't buy it.  Why?  Why not just buy the f**king thing or leave the BIN alone????  It makes NO sense.
