I called up the "Direct-drive turntable appreciation thread" (one of my favorites here on CAM - thank you Old Rusty) to have a look at some of the great PICs posted over the years...and found them all gone except the most recent. The early post images, such as Rusty's SL-D2 are no longer available.

Are these gone forever, or hiding on a backup somewhere? Such a shame to loose all the great PICs so many contributed.

Pretty sure that the belt-drive majority did this to you.
Damn, this is so common in many of the poorer countries of the world but I never thought it would come to this
on our beloved CAM site.

I saw it as a great resource and tribute to a lot of great product, but it seems to be a common problem. Sites such as Audio Karma also seem to be removing pics for anything older than a few months. I wonder if the 'Show us your 2 channel system' has also been stripped down.

Of course if all you use CAM for is buying and selling, then who gives a damn? Maybe the forums are superfluous...

To answer my own question, all the great pics from the 'Show us your 2 channel installation' are gone. What a shame. Our last bit of Mr. Accustat...
