    In that case I don't know what to say and do. I'm in big trouble. Anyway, thanks for the reply.

    Regards

    Did you try "Way Back Machine"?

    PG,

    I went on the Wayback machine and there is an backup dated Dec 6. I could see your attached files there. However, when I tried to view them, it asks me for a password.
    After trying several ways, looks like we can't get those files.

    Thanks, Ian, Steve.

    @Steve: It's very kind of you that you checked it there. Actually I hadn't been to the Wayback machine but still was confident that it won't help. Actually my own computer crashed some time ago and I had problem accessing some folders, especially the ones residing in system drive "c" and many of the images I uploaded here were in one of those cursed folders. But sill there is hope. Once I'm done with the exams I will take a final stab at it. :)

    Best wishes

    PG, is there a specific thread you're looking for?

    Hi

    No. Actually, as you probably know, I use images extensively in my threads and the images also carry my queries. So, you see without the images I can't make any sense what is being discussed. But I will give it a last try once I'm free. Anyway, thanks for asking.

    Regards
    PG

    Yes, I had noticed you use images in every single one of your threads :D

    Just curious, how often do you look back on your old threads? Or are you referring exclusively to your most recent ones?

    So, perhaps you guys have punished me for abusing the free data servers! ;)

    I go through my old threads from time to time. For instance, just some days I had to use some of the threads which I created a year ago. In general I use the old threads quite often. Thank you.

    Regards

    Oh yes, that's definitely it! *Ahem* Now PG, you be good from now on or we'll make the hard drive crash again! :D

    In that case, I hope the waybackmachine helps you. Good luck!

    There should always be an edit button on posts now:

    Thanks I fixed that problem and removed a few dead links. Can't help but feel a loss when good content leaves the net.
