Tis the time of spoilers and spoiler warnings. With the movie out and Deathly Hallows on its way, I thought we should do a little revision.

The instructions for invisible text are below. You might want to try posting "Spoiler Warning Ahead" before putting on the invisiblity cloak-- just to let people know you posted something.

So you couldn't resist. Well, then I better tell you how you make text invisible.
It is quite simple (once you know what to do, but that is true about most things in life). If you write <spoiler>The text you want to be invisible</spoiler> (replace <> with[]) the text get the same color as the background.
Tada, you get invisible text.

Just checking if you were paying attention!
OK, so I've changed the rules a bit. The novelty of spoiler tags wears off quickly. From now on, spoilery topics will be noted as such. For those of us of weak willpower the first couple of pages will be spoiler tagged. When that changes and the thread goes "naked", I'll edit the topic title and post to indicate when to stop reading in order to remain "virgin."

Siobhan, I'm sure I'm not the only person who went on to highlight your entire post to see what you had hidden as a spoiler. But there was nothing.


(Non-spoilery spoiler, that one above. Just playing.)

Thanks for the post!

If you're looking for trouble you found it.

Well, with a week left, I thought I would post this editorial by Stephen King. It probably deserves it's own thread but since everyone's commenting on the end of the series, I'll post it here.

When I read this in Entertainment Weekly, I teared up because I am one of those kids who began reading early enough to be disappointed when no owls arrived for me on my eleventh birthday:

"When it comes to Harry, part of me — a fairly large part, actually —can hardly bear to say goodbye. I'd guess that J.K. Rowling feels the same, although I'd also guess those feelings are mingled with the relief of knowing that the work is finally done, for better or worse.

And I'm a grown-up, for God's sake — a damn Muggle! Think how it must be for all the kids who were 8 when Harry debuted in Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone, with its cartoon jacket and modest (500 copies) first edition. Those kids are now 18, and when they close the final book, they will be in some measure closing the book on their own childhoods — magic summers spent in the porch swing, or reading under the covers at camp with flashlights in hand, or listening to Jim Dale's recordings on long drives to see Grandma in Cincinnati or Uncle Bob in Wichita. My advice to families containing Harry Potter readers: Stock up on the Kleenex. You're gonna need it. It's all made worse by one unavoidable fact: It's not just Harry. It's time to say goodbye to the whole cast, from Moaning Myrtle to Scabbers the rat (a.k.a. Wormtail). Which leads to an interesting question — will the final volume satisfy Harry's longtime (and very devoted) readers?"

Here's a link to the rest of the editorial:http://www.ew.com/ew/article/0,,20044270_20044274_20044682,00.html

Me neither. But I cried anyway when I read Burtnnator's invisible text.
