ArPharazonV (22:19:45): or maybe it was linked right but at the wrong position :-)
AriehnV (22:22:10): i think eonwe and valar glued it together right now [Note: Varda noticed that the transcript said .html instead of .htm and fixed it.]

AriehnV (22:37:23): i wonder if their aim conked out or the internet
