    Well, the last encounter was rather a didaster was it not?

    i wish we could have learned more about some of the other schools, ect. She should actually write "Hogwart's A History" that'd be cool.

    Durmstrang Institute
    headmaster: Igor Karkaroff
    location: a castle in northern Europe, so far north that the days are very short in winter
    uniforms: furs, blood-red robes
    notes: The Durmstrang Castle is not as big as Hogwarts, having only four floors. Its fires are only lit for magical purposes. The grounds are quite extensive and include lakes and mountains. Durmstrang has the reputation of teaching Dark Arts. It does not admit Muggle-born students.

    Beauxbatons Academy of Magic
    headmistress: Olympe Maxime
    location: France
    uniforms: robes of fine silk, attendants of the carriage wear pale blue
    coat of arms: two crossed, golden wands, each emitting three stars

    [link=http://www.hp-lexicon.org/hogwarts/w_pl_hogwarts.html]Has alot of information on Hogwarts itself, probably the closest you'll get to Hogwarts a history[/link]

    I don't think I have, I think those are the book designs

    A give away I think is Ravenclaw because I think in the books the house colours were blue and bronze, yet in the movies they are blue and silver.

    Oh here is another possibility, someone mentioned this before but I forgot about it.

    How about Nearly headless nick?

    His real name is Sir Nicholas de Mimsy Porpington, now Sir in the time he lived would most likely have been a knight or something. However the word sir comes from the word sire yes?

    Sire "Used as a form of address for a superior, especially a king."

    Other than his name really there isn't much information on Nick.

    Novemer 18 is the release for the movie...

    DANIEL i got a wicked deal on fabric for hogwarts robes yesterday! i might possibly have enough to do one extra, i can let you know after i cut....


    EDIT : Troy said he thought he heard somrthing about vampires in this one, so while re reading i have been watching for a Vampire referece, Hagrid makes one p377 raincoast cnd ed. pheonix, Vampire in a pub in Minsk..... could be interesting, though i doubt a Vampire would be the half blood prince.

    i like Vampires it would be cool if they were in the next book, would they come out for you know who or Dumbly-doore, i mean if Voldermort killed all the muggles and half breeds, what would the vamps eat?
