Those scans are amazing. I love the depth of field on this image of Clark Gable.

Friggin awesome post. I'm glad I'm not going to have his bandwidth bill.

crunchland, oh thank you! Don't miss the wallpapers; I'm going to spend time with Louise on my desktop for a while.

Good point, keswick. I asked Matt to coralize the main link. maybe that'll take a little off the top.

I love the depth of field on this image of Clark Gable.

Either that's some serious tilt-shift, or (more likely) the lens is covered with Vaseline.

I second that. These are great! Joan Crawford was one helluva broad.

Does "coralize" mean "make the link not work"?

Good god almighty. Somebody create a cache. This must be preserved for the future. Totally awesome. Tears apply.

Coral is a distributed cache network. The theory is that instead of all of us hitting one server, and sending his bandwidth bill through the roof, we'll actually access a version of the site that's stored on various servers around the world. To coralize a site, you add a little snippet to the url.

http://www.doctormacro.com.nyud.net:8090/Galleries.htm

I can't explain why you can't get to the coralized version of the site, but try the true url if you can't.
