Cribbed from another message board:

Pigwidgeon says:
People who have trouble getting the title use the picture of the wall found on mugglenet.com. There are five bricks. The sequence: topmost right, bottommost right, the one below the highest brick, the lowest, the highest. Then when you get to the room, click on the fan on the table.

Location of bricks, if you are really lazy.

Man what a lot of work for so very little! Good thing I have no life!

"Really Lazy" Not clicking on 50 bricks just to fin five that recess, and taking note and numbering them and coming back is "really lazy"? Sheesh. And people accuse *me* of being an obsessive time-wasting wierdo...

You kidding, right? Um, so how do you mix the potion? And in the award room what is the third metal? And...

Man! It is *really* a good thing I don't have a life.

Okay, it's driving me nuts. Where's the cauldren? What do you dial on the cell phone? What do you do with the bookmark? And what's up with the third medallian box?

Arrgh. I'm supposed to be scrapping a down payment and getting insurance, or at least making hotel reservations (oh, yeah, and work...) but instead i'm racking my brain on this site.

Yeah, like *you've* figured it out. I got frustrated so I made a call to the ministry of magic (1-800-MAGIC) and got the last page but still don't know what to do with the potion ingredients.

The potion ingredients get you one of the pages. If you have all 4 pages, you're done for now.

But that doesn't make sense. You get the pages by doing little things; like 1) calling the ministry of magic 2) opening the little box 3) putting the medals in the boxes (and why are there three boxes but only two medals) and 4) hmm, I don't remember what 4) was. The leaves and the spider and the feather and the beaker were just sitting there for the taking and had nothing to do with the pages.

I think it depends on what you do first. If you collected the potion ingredients first, then you get the first typed manuscript of the Philosopher's Stone (try it at the British site). I'm sure if you tried something else, you can get that page in another way.

Hmmm, you might be right. I clicked on the spider right away before I knew I was suposed to. Then I found the message and saw the leaves and took them. Then I got the feather. Then in the trophy room I put put the medals away and found the beaker. I may have found two pages there and assumed they were from the two medals instead of the beaker. Calling the ministry of magic was really hard compared to the other tasks. Was there any hint that that was what you should do?

I'll be darned. So you mean to tell me I spent my *entire* day wednesday trying to figure something out that I had already figured out ages before when I could have been closing escrow?

You spent a day on jkrowling.com instead of doing something really important?! You must be a fan, perhaps still a muggle, but a fan nevertheless.

Nope. Just an obsessive weirdo with no life.

So, Ralph Fiennes is Voldemort. Hm...

Miranda Richardson is Rita Skeeter. Hm...

They still won't be as good as Alan Rickman as Snape though.

All those fine actors are just slumming through the Potter films, content to go along with all the kiddies' mugging. I don't think I've seen one adult performance that measures up to the best that actor could do, and things probably won't change for Fiennes and Richardson. This is just a lark and a cash cow for them, I imagine.

I don't know if Richardson can top the voice acting job she did for Mrs. Tweedy in Chicken Run....

Not to quibble, but, who is Harry Potter and why is he getting so much attention? And what's all this about magic potions? Oh, hey, wrong thread, I was just slumming...

You can quibble, but first finish all your rice, Eoliano-chan! Then do all your homework. Then you can quibble.

I never quibble about eating all of my rice, hamano-chan, and as for my homework, I left it on Dumbledore's desk, though for some reason when I left the room he was scowling at me.

Yup, one of them admitted it was for the cash and the recognition from young American movie-goers.

Yes, I have to agree although she was very funny in Black Adder and positively incandescent in Enchanted April.
