As Prue said above (back in 2006), and as she (and then I also) said over on your other thread ('bumped' from a year ago) at:
http://www.rootschat.com/forum/index.php/topic,286957
the problem really is the poor quality of the scan.

The writing is hard enough to read anyway - but when it's all pixellated and blurred it makes it extremely difficult.

I do hope that you can get scans at a higher resolution.

Later edit: Another 'bumped' thread (from March 2008) is at http://www.rootschat.com/forum/index.php/topic,289865.0.html
