    That is funny! I have blown up a cauldron or two on occasion...

    NB: if you run out of an ingredient, you can either

    (a) buy it in Diagon Alley

    or

    (b) find it in one of the chapters

    If you need help finding stuff in the book, Googling it usually yields results or you can ask here. To paraphrase Dumbledore:
    You will find that help will always be given at Hogwarts on FSU to those who ask for it.

    I noticed going through Book 1 again that there are some new moments of info to unlock. I've also picked up 3 more galleons so far that weren't there before. Earned 3 badges going back through Book 1.

    A youtube tutorial on the polyjuice potion. An interesting and a safe way to deal with that tricky lacewing bottle.

    Polyjuice Part 1 and 2 completed! Part 2 does take forever but there is a large grace period after the potion is done so don't sweat getting to the cauldron right on the dot.

    And part 2(b) after the 18 hours is very easy--no heating involved.

    To control the darn bottle, lean on the mortar and carefully tip over into the mortar. Leaning it on the side of the mortar helps to control spilling. In the youtube video above, the person actually dumped the wings on the counter and then transferred them from there.

    Remaining chapters released. A big snooze the first time through. I'll go through them again. Some moments seem to have nothing to them. I did collect a lot of galleons. Something expensive must be coming up in future chapters, because there had to be at least 20 galleons collected in these final chapters.

    I'm glad the whole chapter is up...now I can get started! I didn't want to start and have to stop so I decided to wait.

    Eating Mini Ice's Halloween candy and going through the rest of CoS. You are right, Bostonfan, nothing epic so far.

    So I've gone through a few times. Is there a list of goodies we are supposed to find in the final chapters? I'd like to crosscheck.

    Finally- it took me at least 7 tries (i stopped counting!) to brew the Swelling Potion. Now I have to Brew the Polyjuice? I suck at potions. Grrr....
    I know. But I do not approve. And I am not resigned.
