Most GM's do wind up doing similar things to this.

I know that we not only asked about it, but we did digitization of the maps
through a scanner... played with settings to see how well something would
look.... and even sent the copies of such to Mike at his request. I don't
know if anything will ever come of it.

Maybe when the FASA website is redone (chuckle/mirth/laugh)
