You have begun already with the color correcting of the remaining photos, what James (39B) will make very happy too.
Please continue, that's fantastic.

Outstanding!

A thousand and one thanks for the stunning recovery work.

I cannot repay you.

I shall remain in your debt.

I thank you.

Greetings, one and all. It is I, 39B, the one who originally posted the photographs.

I've decided to hedge my bets against any dark day that I earnestly hope shall never come, wherein the internet chooses to move in a way that causes this site to disappear, and I'm going to be placing the images on a web page elsewhere, which I manage, called 16streets.com.

16streets.com updates very irregularly, sometimes not at all for weeks, sometimes daily, is mostly vignettes of life in Cocoa Beach, Florida, centers around surfing, but can encompass most anything I choose to put in there. I tend to post photographs of launches as see from here locally, and that goes double for anything with a first stage that returns to the Cape.

Once I got going with things, I realized that I would be able to include a lot of additional commentary with things, and would be free from any restraints of speaking plainly, thus allowing me to speak in my own irreverent and profane vernacular without having to worry about what some bluenose or other might think about such things, or any people they might see fit to complain to about it. When people complain about the contents of 16street.com, they're complaining directly to me. Best of luck with that one, bluenoses.

So I decided to recognize the kind and wonderful help and encouragement from everyone at nasaspaceflight.com, post the images in the exact same order as they appear in this forum, and then place any and all new comments below those images, and I'm now two whole pages into things.

Lately my work as a free-lance computer repair guy has been slow, the waves have been flat (which is par for the course in Florida, alas), and I find myself endowed with the requisite time to do this work.

That may or may not last, and since it seems to be taking me just about one day to do one page, the pace will be slow when it's fast, and it will become glacially slow when my other lives intrude.

Wish me luck. And I do hope that the additional words might be of some small use, entertainment, or wonder, for those of you who find them.

All of you, one and all of you, have my utmost thanks for all of the support and encouragement which you have so kindly bestowed upon me, and I appreciate both the thanks and yourselves, more than you might imagine.

We shall begin with page one, HERE.

Hi James,
that must have been thought transmission, unbelievable but true.

Just today I was back on your site 16streets.com and was totally surprised by your new own site

B Pad Construction Photos - Space Shuttle.

What a brilliant idea, my friend, which perfectly matches with the intention of my

NSF Thread: Back to the Beginning of NASA's Space Shuttle Missions

and all of us lots of fun.

I'll stay tuned with greatest interest.
