I'd be interested if you could PM me about the newsgroup scene and how to get started. Also, is it true that you reside in Australia? I am in Australia and have long wanted someone whom I could possibly get the SW DVDs from (fan-edits, preservation discs, etc), because the torrents chew up my download limit, and paying for postage from America is ridiculous. Please PM me so that we can talk further.
To contact me outside the forum, for trades and such my email address is my OT.com username @gmail.com
