First, a tip for all who like to take screenshots in LOTRO as much as I do: Periodically, move those pictures out of the main “The Lord of the Rings Online” folder where they are saved by default. I habitually take so many shots at events to be sure I have enough “good” ones for a post, there were over 4000 of them from 2010 alone in there yesterday. I moved them into a subfolder and oh my, how much less lag I had at last night’s concert! It used to take a couple of seconds to save each screenshot; now it’s instantaneous. The downside is that the screenshots are automatically numbered such that, once I moved all the pictures to another folder, the new ones started over with 0000, 0001, etc. Which means when I go to move *these* pictures to the subfolder, there will be name overlap. I may need multiple subfolders. Ah well.
So last night, the delightful and highly accomplished Eriador Light Orchestra of Landroval performed for a crowd of adoring fans at the Methel Stage in Bywater!
We had a bit of a scare when Lyonardo came on stage to announce that the show would begin…but wait! Would it be the show we showed up for?
To our relief, that was just Lyonardo’s idea of a joke.
