Sorry I haven't been commenting much over the last couple of days but I have noticed all those wonderful fake mag covers that have been posted. Great work!!

I've been very busy with giving my profile page a facelift - something I've been meaning to do for ages. After more than five years, I now have pics in my profile!! Not of me - fear not - but of the beautiful one:D

I have also had a great trauma:( I lost every one of my Oxford Murders video clips!! I'm really mystified as to why this happened but it seems to be a peculiarity with Intel Centrino Duo. I'd recently decided to keep all my video clips on the second hard drive but what I've discovered, to my cost, is that you have to be very careful when moving files about. With ICD, if you move one folder into another you promptly lose everything inside the moved folder. You can move individual files into another folder, but not a folder. At least, that is what happened to me. And for some weird reason, I didn't have any of them backed up on disk!!! I really don't know how that has happened because I'm usually paranoid about backing up. I believe I must have lost an entire disk somewhere. Anyway, what this is leading up to - I've managed to find most of the clips on YouTube and Elijah Finds - I'm having to rely on memory so I may have completely forgotten some, but one good thing is that I've discovered some new ones:) But I remember one really good clip which was posted on Elijah Finds just after the Paris prem (the link no longer works) - at the end of it Elijah is reading something in French from a piece of paper. It doesn't seem to be on YouTube. I'd be very grateful if someone could provide a link so that I could download it again. Needless to say, I now have all the recovered clips carefully backed-up on disk!!
ETA: Many thanks to bellewood who has kindly provided a download link for this clip:)

I really must get back to working on the next chapter of 'Journey', and then I'll start tidying up my LJ user pics. Phew!! It's a busy life being an Elijah fan!!

Your profile page is wonderful!! I was fascinated to read about how you came up with your LJ name - what a great story!! I am also a more *cough*mature*cough* Elijah fan - although when I look at Elijah he certainly makes me feel MUCH younger!!

Losing all those clips certainly qualifies as great trauma - I'm so sorry that happened to you. I wish I could help with the clip you still need but I don't think I have that. Hopefully someone else can help you out.

It's always good to hear from you!! *BIG HUGS*

Many thanks - glad you like it. Elijah makes me feel young too - I only wish the face would keep up with how I feel!!

Thankfully Bellewood has provided a link for me which I'm downloading now - that's a great relief as it was quite a long vid and very good:)

I'll take it your answer is yes.. so here you go :
http://www.megaupload.com/?d=B9M2F3II

Be warned, it's a rather large file, and took a while to upload. It's the 'Making of' the Oxford Murders.. it has Elijah speaking french at the end, so i hope it's the one you mean..let me know if it's not.

Your profile is wonderful! You've summed up exactly what that lovely guy means to you..to all of us more mature ladies in fact, for you most certainly are not alone!

I'm sorry to hear you lost those precious OM clips, Pauline, but at least you have retrieved most of them. I see already that Bellewood has offered the missing video, so you're all sorted. Thank heaven for YouTube and your LJ friends!

I just wanted to say what a great job you've done with your new profile page. Lovely story re your LJ name, and very pretty pictures! You're certainly not alone in being a 'mature' EW admirer. I think there are plenty of us out there!

I'll write soon. Take care.

~ Blossom.

Yes - Bellewood has come to the rescue with that clip, bless her:)

So glad you like the profile page - it was a bit difficult to know where to stop - there was so much more I wanted to say and, of course, plenty more beautiful pics!!

What a wonderful profile page, what you say there, it all sounds so familiar. You certainly are not alone.
I'm sorry to hear about losing the clips. I see Bellewood has already provided the link you searched for. Thank God for Lijah friends !
It's a busy life being an Elijah fan!!
It's a job on it's own ! I wouldn't mind turning this hobby into my work though *lol*

Oh yes - getting paid for studying Elijah - that would be perfect:D

You can move individual files into another folder, but not a folder. At least, that is what happened to me.

That's true when moving folders of photos, too. Been there, done that. :-/

I've been very busy with giving my profile page a facelift - something I've been meaning to do for ages.

I just did that, too, for the first time in three years.

It's a busy life being an Elijah fan!!

It surely is. And now I'm involved in TWO fandoms: I've discovered Gerard Butler.

"That's true when moving folders of photos, too. Been there, done that. :-/"

You'd think they would warn you - or perhaps they do somewhere but I've never seen anything. On my main hd I'm used to moving folders about so I just assumed it would be ok - I shudder to think what could have happened - if it had been some of my LOTR folders that really would have been a calamity - a lot of stuff I'd never have found again!!

TWO fandoms!! Oh dear, the mind boggles - I hope you find some time to sleep:D

I'm so glad you've been able to get your videos back! I lost several hundred pics I'd saved and still cannot figure out what I did to them!

I almost wish I'd been paying attention when Lord of the Rings went into production but I couldn't be bothered. It was only later that I realized what I'd missed and I count on folk like you to squee along with now.

Oh dear - how awful!! It's such a sickening feeling when you realise what's happened, isn't it? Computers are such temperamental things - but I don't know what we'd do without them!!

It was only when FOTR was released that I became aware of LOTR - then I started trawling the archives to discover what I'd missed. I often wish I'd been aware of it from Day One:)

**It's a busy life being an Elijah fan** You´re so right, my dear! I have been trying to devide all my free time (and my really free time is only a few minutes a day) to my lovely hobby (reading, to be a fan of LOTR and Elijah, translating of your Journeys and others), even though I plan every minute so carefully, I have been always down and out...but it has been always better than to die from boredom!!
How are you, my dear Pauline? I haven´t heard from you for ages (and you haven´t heard from me, I am sure).
But I miss our frequently and regulary letters...
And I know it is my big mistake...

Hi Allie - I do understand how very busy you are now. I'm doing ok, thanks - I've given up work now, by the way. I decided not to return after my knee operation - there was a lot of reorganisation happening and I didn't want to start somewhere new yet again so I decided the time had come to finish altogether. And I'm enjoying all my extra free time - but even now there don't seem to be enough hours in a day!!

Sorry to hear about your loss but glad all has been safely restored.

Some of my old links no longer work [probably dead by now] and since changing to Vista I have one clip that refuses to play but it's not one I'm worried about so it sits on my hard drive gathering dust! I need a spring clean!

I was going through all my video clips - trying to make sure they were in the right place etc - and I was horrified at how many I came across that would no longer play. The trouble is that with some of them I'm not even sure what they were:(

Gorgeous look to your profile page, well done!

Glad to hear that Belle was able to help you out with that missing video clip.

Looking forward to the next chapter of "Journey", it always brings back such lovely, happy memories :-)

Thanks Jane - glad you like the new profile:)

Yes, Belle very quickly came to my rescue with that clip, bless her!!

Hope it won't be too long before I'm able to post the next chapter - this one will be begin with the filming of 'Shelob' but I haven't decided on a title yet:)

The trouble is, I had no record of exactly what I'd got, so I just had to trust my memory. I think I've probably recovered most of them, and discovered some new ones along the way:)

And oooh, I love your new profile!! I didn't know most of these things!!! :)

And that pic - the Not alone one - has been my background pic on all my computers, at home and at work, since I saw TTT and found the screencap soon after. :)
