I still have it saved if you change your mind and want me to remove the last posts in there and put it back up.
Spam him with PMs if you liked the thread. Smile
I know I checked it out whenever there were updates.

fuck that guy! you had a great build thread going! I read through it all while on an aircraft carrier at sea.. it's basically dial up speeds out here.. but it was worth waiting to see what you were doing..
