Recently, Gregory and I, each, have made a post to
this List in which we supplied a URL to an image on a
"tripod.com" server. Many of you may have experienced
difficulty in accessing that image, particularly if
you are on the Condensed Digest - Archive version of

URL in the post, and "paste" it into the "Location" or
"Address" box of your browser. The "Back" button
should return you to the original message.
Sorry for any inconvenience.
For your convenience, here are the URLs again:

rust-buckets as we all know, so maybe even more
careful curation than I afforded it might not have
prevented the inevitable. It appears to have
destroyed itself from the inside out, the center was
practically just rusty powder, the outside was the
only thing holding
it together. Those who like pro wrestling, auto
races, or Lethal Weapon movies might "enjoy" the
photo. ;-) Ashes to ashes and dust to dust, I
