Hello all!

I introduced myself on the topmost post but thought I might give some background to my user name.

Jut to clarify, you can all call me Pigboy.  ;D

"You there, Pigboy," was a line in the book The Black Cauldron, that my friends and I would say to each other as an inside joke many moons ago.

Fast forward a few years when me and those same friends were having a reunion of sorts and we were watching the Star Wars trilogy (the originals of course).  We got to Empire and to the scene where Chewbacca finds a dismantled C3PO in Cloud City ready to be scrapped by the pig-like Ugnaughts.  One of my friends said "You there, Pigboy!" just as Chewie storms in and another said "Don't call me Pigboy!" just as the Ugnaughts start to play keep-away with C3PO's head.  Hilarity ensued.  :roflmao

Man, we are such geeks.
