Photos Of Past Moments

A good portion of the posts here are inspired by things from the ol' email inbox. Got a PowerPoint from my Nuckle Kim today that is pretty compelling - mostly because I'm trying to figure out who some of the players are. Did a little looking and there is a site that has it available for embedding, so I'm gonna give it a try:


I took it apart in Open Office's Impress just so to try to ID some of the photos.
