Overwhelming and very cool. Thanks. Who knew there'd be an article on pipeline bouys?

Awesomeness. I just wish navigating the content management system (CMS) wasn't so... archaic.

Wow -- these things are amazingly, amazingly ahead of their time. Except for the title (and the date) this table of contents from 1965 could have been designed this year.

Been trying to pull off an identically comprehensive online archival effort with the backcatalogue of The Face magazine, but withdrew it from online circulation out of terror over intellectual property lawsuit potential...

It's about time things like this started appearing - although, must admit, the interface and reproduction could be much better...
