I am magical!

Yes, I am magical! See this:

I signed up a while back for, J.K. Rowling's newest treat for all Harry Potter fans out there. The site will officially be open to all in October but I was asked to return on July 31 to check out something. Okay, I forgot. And when I checked, Day 1 registration was already closed.

Anyway, I found out that from July 31 through August 6, Rowling is offering the chance to enjoy the privilege of an early peak into the website before the October launch. There's a question each day, each pertaining to a book in the Harry Potter series (chronologically). Once you know the answer, you have to type this at the end of the web address, which should appear as answer. Then you'll be redirected to a site where you have to find the "magic quill," click on it, then proceed with the registration process. That is, of course, if you're lucky enough to still be within that day's quota. If you're not, you still have more chances until August 6.

I tried my luck again today, constantly checking the site throughout the day. And late this afternoon, Day 2 was finally open! The clue I answered today was:

What is the number of the chapter in which Professor McGonagall cancels the Quidditch match between Gryffindor and Hufflepuff? Multiply this number by 42.

I answered 588 (Chapter 14 x 42). The email to confirm my registration took a while to arrive, though, and I was panicking a bit. But all's well now.

Now I just have to wait for my welcome email for details on how and when I can access the beta site since they're not allowing everyone to access it all at once; they're scheduling it. So let's just wait. I'll break the news to you once I get in. Hopefully it'll be soon.
