First, second, fifth, twenty-second….who cares? LOL That was the best Quibbler, to date! I especially liked Luna’s Column and meeting Aberforth’s Goats!
Love it, love it! Can’t wait for the Christmas Issue!!!!!

Hi Becca
Since I am not sure what computer system you have or what software you use, I can only give general directions.
First, you need to down the the PDF file—You can do that from this comments page where you see the words "PDF format via this link. " Put your curson on that and click.
Of course you still can’t read it unless you have a pdf reader like Acrobat (or if you are a Mac user, Preview). Fortunately these programs are free and come preinstalled on most computers. There are other pdf readers, but those are the two main ones. Some folks have pdf plugins in their web browser and can open the page right in their web browser.
We certainly hope you all enjoy this month’s edition. Xeno has been feeling a bit under the weather and some of us jumped in as volunteers. I hope we haven’t messed things up too much.

yes. but you see the thing is is that i cannot download the pdf. i was just wondering if there was anyway to just read it on the site. i am absoloutly obsessed with the harry potter movies… (and rupert grint:S) and i would really not like to miss out on this opportunity.

Well, I didn’t mean to insult you or anything, Confederate Lady, so if I annoyed you, sorry. Just saying that your first won’t kill anyone. Oh and after I read the articles, it’s even better than I expected! Luna’s column is extremely funny!

becca, why can’t you download the pdf? What browser are you using and what kind of computer do you have? PC/Mac? It’s very hard to give help or constructive work-arounds when we don’t know this…

no, I am sorry becca but it is not available in html format. I would suggest that you go to www.adobe.com and download a free copy of Acrobat Reader. Beyone that, if your browser won’t download anything, I would suggest trying something like Firefox instead of Internet Explorer—if that is what you have. One of the Quibbler Staff had a problem with Explorer not downloading pdf’s and switched to Firefox.

Ohh!!! New issue of the Quibbler. I can’t wait to read it. Hey, when I got home today guess what I found waiting for me on my porch. My copy of Melissa’s book, Harry, A History, was delivered today. I am so excited. I can’t wait to start reading it. Unfortunately, I have a whole stack of papers to grade first. Wait a minute, I have to get my priorities straight…Harry first, then grading. Yeah!!!! It looks good Melissa.

that was my first read of the Quibbler, what a joy! Are you watching and listening, WB? The fans know what the Quibbler would say, what kind of articles it would contain! I’d like to see Luna’s column be like a “Dear Abbey” column, she would give the best, off the wall responses, that somehow always made eternal sense in the end…lol…I am giggling to myself, just thinking about them…hehehe…oh, and wouldn’t it be great if Hermione was a roving reporter, she could interview those in the “regular wizarding community” which ofcourse, Xeno would throw his spin on the results…it would be a laugh!
