Greetings to all. I've just arrived and posted a link to a Terry Pratchett speech he made at the
National Book Festival in D.C. in September 2007. I just got my first hi-def camcorder and
was itchin' to try it out. Sorry for the jiggly camera work. No tripod and constant bumping
and banging (not unlike the dinner table at Unseen U.). Part 2 goes up probably tomorrow.

I haven't had chance to watch it yet, dizbang. I'm back to using my laptop and need to plug my earphones in. Now if I could just find them . . . ;)

Found them! And just watched it. Terry is always so good to listen too. After the first time I met him, I heard his voice in my head every time I read a Discworld book for quite some time. :lol:

Thanks for posting! I'll look forward to part 2.

Hello and welcome :D I'll go take a look at your video shortly! How long have you been a Sir Terry fan? For me it's been 16 years and still going strong after meeting him last year!!

Mrs. Ogg
My wife was a librarian (ook) and got his first book shortly after it was published.
She got me hooked. We have every hardback, every softcover, and many books about discworld
and Sir Terrance.

Bonjour!

if you don't get the joke it's your loss
Love and laughter you see are the new currency
'cause greed's coinage is not worth a toss
