    Semi-random pictures DANGER: slow-modem-free zone

    As most of you who frequent this site will have figured by now as well as liking to collect unusual photos and pictures I'm a bit of a space exploration nut and have acquired quite a few pictures and memorabillia over the years. Just recently I've bought a new scanner/printer/photocopier/pie-warmer/cigar dispenser so I thought I'd scan in some of my pictures to see how it went. Unfortunately, as with everything that tries to do everything it doesn't seem to do anything very well but hopefully I'll get it going better as I go along.
    Anyway, here are the first in an occasional series comprising Apollo missions which I'll host for a while, but since there is a limit on what I can put on, I'll take them down when next I can be bothered putting up new ones, so if you want them, download them. None are subject to copyright unless you want to make money off them in which case you'll have NASA et al after your ass. Sorry about the quality.
