I scored a Clauss bread knife today, and went to a great gem on our forum in the Historical Finds section. There is a thread steeley started about them. However, it seems any image steeley has ever posted has diappeared!
What's up? I haven't heard anything out of steeley for a while either. Would hate to lose this great historical reference.

It seems the photo hosting site he used, LimePic, shut down. From the cached page on Bing:

"We regret to announce that LimePic will soon be approaching its end. As of next month the site will be shut down indefinitely. Please use this time to backup any saved pictures you have saved. The reason is because cost of running this site became too great. We are sorry and thanks to everyone for making this site great!"

Too bad. Let's hope he still has copies of the photos and can take the time to host them elsewhere.

Agreed. I'm stating the obvious when I say Steeley and his posts were encyclopedic. Something I really enjoyed.

SO it appears some the images are back up .
LimePic my old image host might be hanging on with a new owner
but all that remains to be seen .
Dave and I are working on this but it is quite the pain .

Thanks
Steeley
