How exciting! Jarkko has set up a whole new section on the Forum!

I have to join a conference call at 3.00 pm UK time. Will I be concentrating on the subject at hand? What do you think?!

Welcome to the Forum and let's hope we don't take the internet down! :D

Diana

Thank you Diana !!
Due to the fact that I am quite a novice in this forum, could anybody tell me if we have to wait to see something appearing on The front page or here in the forum ?
On the front page, there is a quote "All news items are first posted on the Leonard Cohen Forum. Hundreds of messages every month! Join us there! " so I imagine I have to patiently wait here ???
2.39 pm brussels time ....not that long anymore ......I feel like one of my kids waiting for his birthday party to start.....Nakhes !!!!

It should be on http://www.leonardcohenfiles.com/ first I think but you can bet that pretty soon after the announcement the forum will be discussing 'it'!
Wendy - as long as you don't have a video conference you can 'multi-task' right :)

Tinkie...

The Forum is part of the Leonard Cohen Files. The announcement is supposed to be on the front page of the Files first. Look up at the top of this page and you will see under leonardcohenforum, the leonardcohenfiles.com. Click on that and you will be directed to the home page. It's less than an hour now :D :D :D :D

Just one question is troubling me in my old age... could someone please explain : if this is going to be a 'concert for the fans' - what other type of concert is there??

Habie, that is what I asked myself too. Never in history of forums had a chief administrator so much power over his forum members as Jarkko has today and probably will have again and again until he finally retires with an overloaded Ego-Box. Ah .. men .... or should I say Amen ?

Maybe it would a perfect timing to retire today at 9:59 EST and just close the sites! ;-)

Aaah, Jarkko!
No matter what others have said against it: There IS a tiny little bit of cruelty about you, isn't there? Even the mere idea of keeping the long-awaited announcement all to yourself shows it... ;-)

You should ask Eija about this! [Of course there is!!]
(But the exact timing of the announcement was defined by the tourm management, not me!)
