I'm the owner of the August 2004 "little giant" featured custom......Where is it? It's been three (3) years since the archive said "will return soon." I wish you guys could see this this like I get to everyday. Let me know if you guys have heard anything about the page going missing.

Hi Derrick; I don't think there has been any mention here on the board of why the "Little Giant" page is not up. Every once in a while we have a problem with pictures disappearing because of a bug in the software that our discussion board runs on, but I don't think that would have anything to do with the COTM pages. You may want to email Mica about this; perhaps it's something like misplaced jpg files that she just hasn't had a chance to get to.

Well, Web Archive catches a glimpse of Little Giant, but when you go to the FC page, it shows the Out Of This World FC.

It's not the photos... it's the write up. I overwrote the featured_custom.html file on the server by accident and didn't have local backup, a total DOH moment. Now I'm all CVS and symbolic link city, so it won't happen again. I will do something to get The Little Giant up so everyone else can enjoy him again. The text won't be exactly the same, but the pictures will be.

A little trivia: the Redwood trees in the background of the wallpaper are in front of my parents' house.
