ANCHORAGE, Alaska — Forget piddling around a mere few days for an iPhone. Two sisters are in the midst of an 11-day vigil for this summer's hottest, "must have" low-tech phenomenon — the latest "Harry Potter" novel.

Chloe and Sydney Bostian started camping out Tuesday in front of Gulliver's Books in Fairbanks to be among the first Alaskans to find out their hero's fate in "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows."

The seventh and final installment in the series by author J.K. Rowling will be released at midnight, July 21.

What sort of sorcery could make teenage girls live outside a bookstore for 11 days?

Read the news here.

Damn!
I think the books are poorly written, it almost killed me to read the first page of the first book.
But my sister adores them and her boyfriend pre-ordered her a copy for her birthday or something so it's all good >_>

Yes. The first, oh, 4 chapters of the first book are pretty boring. But, if you get through that, it gets much better. :D
 
And she ruined it how?
6th book was second best next to Prisoner of Askaban in my opinion.

Amazon pre-order FTW!

ITS OVER 9000!
the books always get better (except 3 > 4)
this book I bet will be the best because any charactor can die at anytime since its the last book, only thing is the ending must be amazing and fast (no two chapters of Harry being pissed like at the end of book 6)

Chapter 28: The End

Snape kills Dumbledore. Hermione's a dude. Ron joins the circus to work as a lion after Harry transmogrifies him and is arrested, convicted, and executed. Draco marries Hermione and they have several ugly children. Hogwarts explodes due to magic not being real.

THE END

Unacceptable!
Harry potter is like reading Old Man and the Sea seven or eight times.

It doesn't go anywhere until the end,

Cept, any harry potter book is the size of 3+ Old Man and the Seas.

A few thigns just don't click to me in this story though.

I stopped reading at The Goblet of Fire but;

Voldemourt, or however it's spelled, is like a total bad ass.

And Harry always goes home for the summer.

Can you say Teleport + Ava Cava = Own3d?

Story ends book one.

Me FTW.

If you think that, you really need to read the other books. :p There's a reason that it hasn't happened to Harry.

He's only immune to harmful magic while in the house. Not to conventional weapons. Also there's nothing stopping one of the baddies to teleport into a military base and steal a tank or something.

    In the GIF, I've configured it so the lower the "Main Value" is, the better. I had to compress it pretty far down though.

    Hmm, about the Headline News, I noticed threads are being moved into the subforum (Health News, Environmental News, etc.). When that happens, the TH Forum Home page loses the articles, and instead would show old articles posted 1 or 2 weeks ago.
  • tom_mai78101 tom_mai78101:
    What do we do with the Home page?
  • Ghan Ghan:
    I added those forums to the filter for that widget.
  • tom_mai78101 tom_mai78101:
    Oh nice. They're back. Thanks.
  • tom_mai78101 tom_mai78101:
    Now I think it makes more sense for me to put news in their own subforums, without worry.
  • The Helper The Helper:
    Awesome Ghan thanks! I was purposely not moving the first 15 news articles in Headline news to the different subforums but I guess I don't have to do that now?
  • tom_mai78101 tom_mai78101:
    Question: Is there a way to remove thread redirects? It creates a copy of the moved thread and takes up space, and I am leaning towards wanting to remove them in the Headline News. But if they have an expiration date, I guess I'm fine with it.
  • The Helper The Helper:
    If you move a thread please leave a permanent redirect. You can delete any redirects after 6 months. The redirects are left to help Search Engines find the moved content.
  • tom_mai78101 tom_mai78101:
    What if you move the permanent redirect, not the thread?
  • The Helper The Helper:
    I think that works but I have not messed with it. You can delete redirects though if you have to that will not delete the original thread
  • The Helper The Helper:
    if a redirect ends up in the same forum as the post it goes to though I think the redirect drops or fails or something but they are not bugged out and when you are working on an indirect the original post is safe.
