Hobbit talk

I just re-read The Hobbit. It left me speculating on how Turgon's sword got from Gondolin to a troll-cave near Rivendell. There's no official explanation, far as I can tell, so I can make up a theory for my own satisfaction. Collapse )


... also, I wonder if hobbits bred smaller breeds of cow, pigs etc? And were Farmer Maggots big scary dogs actually small terriers?

My icons are not really suitable to this post, but I thought this one could reasonably be described as 'Over the land there lies a long shadow'. :-p

Spam filters

I am using a new spam filter, Spamatoxy from Spamato. First impressions: it was a bit of a git to install, due largely to instructions written with the best of intentions but clearly by a non-native English speaker.

I just deleted all the spams sent to me on 18th March. There were 759 of them. Lucky I don't have to read the buggers.
