Maybe this should be off-list, but Kurt seems to be unfairly taunting the good fella who scanned that stuff, so I want to stick up for him publicly.

A word of advice: If you like getting all this historical stuff scanned and put up on the web for you for free, please don't criticize the way the people doing it choose to release it. Robert is scanning a TON of stuff and it's a lot of work. At the risk of putting words in his mouth, I believe he has high standards for the stuff he releases, and wants to get everything cleaned up, rotated, cropped, resized, formatted and optimized before he puts it out for everyone. It was NICE of him to release the Cool Gear stuff early to one guy who asked for it, but he's under no obligation to release it to everyone else before it's ready.

Now tell Robert you're sorry! :)
