      Well Holistah did most of the work back then. It did take a few hours to get everything sorted out and cleaned. I'll keep this updated as often as possible.

      Is there a way to get in touch with the original posters and fix up the dead pics? Just a thought.

      You could try to PM the OP of the thread. If he can't host the pics I could do it on my photobucket account.
