I wanted to add some info to the Wiki on the early production of the Slimp3's and early prototypes to show how quickly the SlimDevices have progressed.

I know there used to be images archive at http://www.slimdevices.com/photos but many of the ones I remember looking at are no longer there.

One series in particular is a shot of someone hunched over a workbench soldering Slimp3 boards with beer bottles strewn about. There was also a series when you guys went to see the first batch of board being screen in a factory. If these could be put back onto to the SlimDevices site for me to link back to from the Wiki that would be a help.

I did find one great image of a "breadboard" Slimp3, http://www.slimdevices.com/photos/creedence.jpeg . If you could give a rough date of this prototype and its place in the linage of development and/or any other images like this that would be great.

The wire-wrapped one is from around June 2000

Some of the photos were archived by archive.org's Wayback Machine in 2001.

Those were the images I had in my head. Scary what one remembers, just think of what I had to forget in order to remember those images.... I'll link to the web.archive.org images from the wiki.

Any ideas on the timeframe of the "Creedence" Prototype that is still on your site?
