Not to really whine and complain but he didn't do that.
I did.
That was the Daydream kit that I got from Rasnett in Seattle last fall and before I sold the kit to Helf. Hoping he would also be able to dump the GAL chip, I scanned and imaged it all in.
If the Metadata still exists on all the photographs, everything was originally scanned in on a CanoScan 5000F.
IF he did rescan and reimage everything then he could of at least told me so I didn't just make myself look like a fool. Razz

Also, I swear I included a a scan-in of the front and back of the main ROM PCB (EDIT: I did photograph the PCB at least here, here, and here.

I have all the scans, images and photos stored on a 3 1/2" MO cartridge.

Gah! I swear I sent you everything but I guess I didn't. >_>
Yeah, sorry about that then. I still have a bunch of stuff here ranging from the pinout for the daydream box ribbon cable to scan-ins of the PCB.

I'll have to find the MO drive again. The fan died on it and it refuses to work right unless it's kept somewhat cool. I'll get in touch with him when I get the chance to fix the drive.
