    That's a very convenient service you provide on your www.black-and-white-to-color.com site, paulselhi.


    It's a heck of a service, and the answer to all my 60s and 70s pictures.

    Wow, this is awesome. Glad we have a sticky. This shall NEVER die!
    If I lay my head down I will see you in my dream,
    Wearing that polka-dot dress, and sitting by the stream.
    Leaning in to hear you, you will whisper in my ear.
    And everything I need to know, I finally hear.

    When I was a baby we would go out to the park,
    And sit out in the fountain, splashing 'round until its dark.
    The days on forever when you only know that much,
    And everything I need to know is answered with one touch.

    How about BAD website design!

    OK, I know this is more of a graphic design forum, and perhaps this SHOULD go in the chit-chat forum, but budding web designers would do well to look at:
