Hi, Alex,

Peter Brothers's response to my 2005 query on ARSCLIST is here:

http://www.cool.conservation-us.org/byform/mailing-lists/arsclist/2005/12/msg00073.html

My image is back up where it was, but because people had been 
hot-linking my images, you'll need to copy the URL and paste it into 
your browser. It didn't click for me from the cool website. Pasting the 
link into the browser should allow you to see the image.

Good luck!

Cheers,

Richard
