Silver Lining #2
The WayBack Machine from the Internet Archive has been crawling this forum for several years. I just did a quick glance at their copy of the "What's Cooking" thread, and there are a lot of pictures and avatars there. If you're familiar with the Wayback Machine you can probably find anything you really need to replace there except for anything posted since the last crawl. If you're not, I'll you should be.
At the risk of repercussion I'll add that it would be polite and probably appreciated if users would refrain from including pictures in a reply. Pictures take up far more of Phil's server space than text, and it's really easy to backspace them out of a reply. Not to mention it's really annoying to scroll thru a half page of pictures I've already seen just to read the smartaxx one-liner at the bottom.
