    Thanks Jim. Depends on the definition of "right" Id have to spend probably weeks trying to get it back to 100% but that's neither needed or practical.

    No doubt when I hand back the reins of power as a Moderator I will spot something along the line of "How did I miss that?" lines.

    It has been though a bit of a compliment in someways having the number of readers that I have had as a great number of pictures were missing especially in the first 300 or so pages. None the less more than a few, according to their PM's and emails, have read from start to finish. Personally I think its much much better with the pictures there.

    Thanks for the reply Jim.

    Getting there. There are a couple of photos that have eluded me. Come to the sensible conclusion that I should get the camera out and rephotograph the area. Its the gulley along side the engine where lots of crud, dead leafs etc gather. Been a couple of years since I last cleaned it out so I bet its just as mucky again. Must have spent hours, stupidly, looking for this err darn photo. Similar thing with page 61 I know I have those photos somewhere.

    Been 'snagging' today. As I browsed through the pages there were more than one or two photos that eluded me. I learned the lesson half way through not to dwell on the photos I could not find. On the basis that whilst looking for others I may come cross the missing ones by chance. So limited myself to around half an hours search then if that was not fruitful I made a note of the page number and get back to those later. I am now 80% through that list. Only half a dozen or so pages to go.

    Intended to get out there today and take some photos that were missing. Alas its chucked it down all day with high winds so had to put that on hold too.

    Right off to a Burns night tonight. Better go and get a shower!

    Frank, save yourself a bit of time, I’m guessing most of the time you find the photos within say 10 minutes. If so allow yourself a little more time but then move on. I’m thinking you'redoing 95/5 whereas 80/20 will probably work just as well. Give it a go.

    Bit late. Just half a dozen photos to do then a complete read through and I am done.

    Learned a lot of lessons and insight into my own mindset. More to follow.

    Just got back from my Burns Night. Sheep's stomach and whiskey is an unusual combination.

    To be fair, sheep's stomach and anything is an unusual combination!

    Proof checking needed.................

    Right. On the downhill bit now, yes I know the thread has been going downhill for years, no I mean the restoring photos bit.

    I have been from page 1 to 500+ and replaced all the photos, of mine, with the originals or as close to the originals as I could find. Lost track of how many.

    Now I have done all that I have started going through the entire site checking stuff. It is sending me literally stare crazy. Got to page 100 and at this stage I really am in skimming mode. Very briefly reading each page and especially looking for missing or wrong photos.

    This is where I need your help. Could you have a look through Franks Story and see if you can find anything that is 'not right', missing etc? Then let me know? This way I can turn around to anyone in the future who says 'hay, thats not right because................. etc' and tell them it was proof checked not just by me etc.

    Thanks!!
